SBS Console Error

I have a SBS 2008. When I go to the Windows SBS Console under Network --> Computers I have one computer that doesn't connect properly. It gives me the following error: Online - Do not have permission to access information for this computer.

How can I fix this issue?

Should I first remove the computer name from the Active Directory, DNS and DHCP?
Rob Williams

I would disjoin the domain and then remove. The reason for changing the name is to be sure there are no reminants of the PC such as AD, DNS, DHCP, ARP, NetBIOS cache etc.

AD, DNS, DHCP : I know how to remove/clean a certain computer

Is there anything else I should do?
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

From a command line:
Flush DNS cache:  ipconfig /flushdns
Flush NetBIOS cache:   nbtstat -R   (note capital 'R')
Flush ARP cache:  netsh interface ip delete arpcache

Correct me if I am wrong, I run these command lines from the SBS!!!

will these command lines affect any other computer on the network or not presently on the network to do people on vacation?
Rob Williams

On the SBS, and there will be no negative affect on any computers. The caches are automatically updated and retained for a period of time every time a connection of any sort is made. The intent is to speed up name resolution for commonly accessed devices, but we are talking about fractions of a second.
