SBS 2003 rebuild - Access denied when joining new domain with same name as original domain

We have just installed a new Windows SBS 2003 to take over from an existing server.
The new server is configured identically to the original server. That is same domain name, IP address config, etc.
All Windows XP Pro workstations can not join the domain with "Access Denied" errors.
I believe this has something to do with original SIDS on the workstations. There are quite a few workstations to rejoin to the domain.
Does anyone have any solutions to resolve this problem?

(Microsoft is really annoying. How can they expect a 500 to 1000 workstation network to not have the option of replacing a server with identical details??? very strange)
