Here's the situation:
I have one Windows 7 Professional PC that has the local Administrator account disabled.
Initially, I added a new Windows XP client to the domain and inadvertently assigned the same computer name to the XP client that the Windows 7 client already had (OFFICE-PC2).
Active Directory accepted my request to add the new XP client and allowed the computer account of OFFICE-PC2 to be assigned to the XP client.
Once I logged into the XP client using my domain credentials, I was notified that there was a duplicate name on the domain.
In my haste, I deleted OFFICE-PC2's computer account from Active Directory and reassigned a new name for the XP client of OFFICE-PC3.
The original Windows 7 PC that had the original computer account name of OFFICE-PC2 is now orphaned. It was not removed from the domain properly and will no longer allow me to log into the client.
The local Administrator account is disabled.
I manually created a new computer account in Active Directory called OFFICE-PC2.
Is there any way to reestablish the link between the orphaned Windows 7 PC (OFFICE-PC2) and Active Directory?
I've booted from my rescue CD and went into the CMD window and tried to enable the admin account by typing the following:
net user administrator /active:yes
It indicated that the command completed successfully. Now when I try to log in I receive the following error (using a domain account):
The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
