Hi i have server A in the AD. I had shutdown the server. I have built new server with the same name. but for some reason the application is not working.

So I want to bring back that old server. When i connect to the network it says computer account not in the AD or username password not valid or domain controller unavailable.

Can you please help us to bring that back

Dids you add your new server to AD with the same name. Sounds like you have a SID problem. What is the eventlogging displaying (AD server and local on your new server).

all you have to do, disconnect the new server, reconnect the old server, logon as local administrator,
rejoin domain with the same name.
