cannot logon after restoring image "....because the systems computer account in its primary domain is missing or password is incorrect'
Posted on 2004-09-16
i HD died on a server. i restored the image using acronis true image server. it seems to have restored jsut fine. but when i go to log on, i get this error msg;
"......cannot log onto the domain because the systems comptuer account in its primary domain is missing or the password is incorrect..."
i havent changed the passwords! is it talking about the computer object in AD? i deleted the computer object in AD. still no good. demoted to a workgroup, then promoted back to domain, still no good. changed computer name, still no good.
any ideas? i use the administrator password, so there isnt a issue here, the domain admin password hasnt changed since the image, i am 100% sure.
