I had a server as Domain Controller,  two day ago I converted to Virtual this server and with the physical server Without network I did and dcpromo /forceremoval, changed the Ip and PcName. i want to keep this server as member server so i Tried to join to the domain and i obtain this error.

"error attempting to join the domain 'XXXX'" The directory service can not allocate a relative identifier.

Any idea?
I need to create a new SID? How can I do?

Thanks.

Did you run metadata cleanup after force removing the DC?

Are all your FSMO roles assigned?

run
netdom query fsmo

and check that each role, especially RID master is assigned to a valid Domain Controller.
If it does not have a valid server name, then seize the fsmo roles using the following instructions.
