I have an XP workstation that thinks it's in a domain but the computer account was deleted in AD and now the PC can't logon. I can't logon on locally and move to a workgroup and then back to the domain as the local admin password was generated manually.
Why doesn't creating a computer account manually in AD with the same name work? I'm aware that the SIDs will be different and this is probably the reason why but what's the point of being able to create a computer object if you can never use it?
Thanks for any help.
