Ok i'll give you some background. I just performed a VMware P2V on our exchange server. The conversion worked no problem and booted on the new esxi server. However as soon as I installed VMware tools and connected the VM to the network it would not connect to the domain, saying the domain was unavailable or computer account did not exist, I deleted the computer account on the AD server and disconnected and reconnected to the domain. Now when I boot it just gets stuck on "Applying Computer Settings" (been stuck there for hours).
I have logged into the computer using safe mode and removed all unnecessary programs including APC Powerchute and AV which are known to cause this problem.
It seems to login to the domain fine when in safe mode and the are no errors in the event log on the AD server.
There are errors relating to exchange and IIS in the exchange server event log.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
