    I would remove the PC from the domain.
    Delete the computer account in AD
    Rejoin the PC to the domain.
    Move the PC back to the correct OU.
    Sometime the relationship is just broken...

    Accepted Solution

    Usual cause (from Microsoft):
    The computer's machine account has the incorrect role or its password
    has become mismatched with that of the domain database.
    Log on locally as a local administrator. In the Network tool of Control Panel, select Change and enter a Workgroup name, leaving the domain. Restart the computer and log on locally as a local administrator.
    There are two methods to rejoin the domain:
        * You can join the domain from the client if at the same time you can provide an administrator username and password on the domain.
        * You can delete the existing computer account in Server Manager, recreate the computer account, synchronize the domain, and then on the client rejoin the domain.
