Server wont stay connected to domain

I am having a heck of a time with a server disconnecting itself from the domain. Not sure why. And when i go to rejoin it, it now says that multiple sessions exists, so i check the domain controller and there are none for that server and user. Then it will periodically disconnect from the domain after reboot and I have to rejoin.

I have switched NIC cards and it didnt fix problem. I am running WSUS on the server and a computer auditing program which doesnt work because it cant scan the domain but i can browse it still. At one point I was unable to execute .exe programs from remote computers because it said it did not have permission for this network resource which I believe has to do with why my auditing program doesnt work correctly. Plz Help

Is it cloned from another machine ?

if its a cloned machine imaged from another machine any you did not use SYSPREP to chnage the SID then you will have multiple machines with the same SID.

Use NewSID to generate a unique SID for the machine, then rejoin it to the domain http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897418.aspx

No it is not cloned. But I have already tried newsid thinking that it may fix my problem but it is still giving me a headache. Actually I used NewSid and I keep getting denied to join the domain that there are multiple connections but theres not, at least i'm not seeing them.

Yeah I would take it off of the domain and rename the machine with something different and check for connectivity.
