I have a computer that it stopped allowing me to logon to it with a network account.  The computer account is there (in AD) and the computer was added to the domain a long time ago.

I can logon to the computer locally (Local Administrator) and when I browse the network, I can see mapped network drives.  I can also logon with the cached administrator account (unplug the network cable), then after the logon, I can plug the cable back and browse the network.  I can RDP to the computer by name and IP address.  

I can not remove/rename the computer since I have applictions that tie to the name, IP and MAC.

Any help on this would be appreciated.

thanks,

Bill

You dont need to rename. Just remove from domain, join a work group and then Join the domain again.
IP, Mac and name stay the same.

Neilsr is correct, this issue occurs due to secure channel broken between WS and DC, Only option in this case is disjoin WS from domain and again rejoin it to the domain.

name and IP will remain same.
