Hi,

What happens if we remove the computer objects in the Active directory when the machine is Live.

Will there be any login issues or should we add the machine back to domain  or just a restart would do?

Regards

Even if you re-create the account it will have a different SID and password

You have to remove the machine from the domain and re-add it.

The users will not be able to login, you need to rejoin all the machines to domain
