Using netdom to reset server password
Posted on 2010-08-18
I have a situation where I believe that one of my servers may have lost connection with the domain. The symptoms are as follows
When attempting to log in via RDP using any user account I get an access denied message
Trying to run %logonserver% from the command prompt brings up a password prompt
Trying to run net time /set brings up an access denied error message
Event ID 1030, 1058, 1097 in the event log
I have already ran a netdom verify on the machine and it claims that the secure channel to the domain is good but i dont really know if that is the case.
So what I was thinking of doing was running a netdom reset on the server but the last thing I want to do is to mess it up if that would cause the server to need to be disjoined/rejoined to the domain.
