Greetings,

I had a situation where a win 2003 server was off line for 3 weeks. It was one of two domain controllers.

When i put it back in service I started receiving  the error below on the other dc referring to the first one mentioned:

The kerberos client received a KRB_AP_ERR_MODIFIED error from the server host/servername.domainname.com.  The target name used was . This indicates that the password used to encrypt the kerberos service ticket is different than that on the target server. Commonly, this is due to identically named  machine accounts in the target realm (domainname.com), and the client realm.   Please contact your system administrator.

This question looks to be the same or similar:

The solution there was to demote the server and the promote it again to dc.

Is that the smartest course of action or is there a better way to resolve this?

Also what problem is this causing?  This question seems to imply that it isn't causing any problem and instead the error should just be supressed.  Or perhaps I am reading it wrong.

Thanks for any advice.

Best regards,
