Compter randomly drops off domain

Hey there,

For the second time in 2 weeks i have had users complain they cannont log in. I  try other accounts and find that they indeed cannont log in either. With the first system I logged into the system locally and removed the computer from the domain and deleted it from Active directory. I added it back and everything was ok. This week i had the same problem, only i couldnt add it back in. I was getting a duplicate name issue but i am 100 percent sure there is no other name used on the network. I checked DNS and deleted the name entries accociated with that IP Address. Even with the computer name account deleted from Active directory i can still ping the system by name and do a reverse ping -a on the address and it still resolves to that computer name. But it does not exsist on the network! Im a bit worried now since i dont know who may be the next victim. Any Ideas?

Any Ideas?

It looks like the previous consultants did have two machines with the same name. I dont know how they ever worked so long wthout any issues.

Very strange..
