Just reformatted this PC and am trying to use connectcomputer wiz to rejoin to domain - when I run the wiz, it tells me that "An error occured when configuring networking settings. See your network administrator."  I can ping the server using the servername and the IP - no problem.  I have added the servers IP to the trusted sites in IE on the client PC.  Have delted and recreated computer name on server (twice).  Have rebooted server.

Is file and printer sharing enabled on the workstation?  It needs to be.
