rejoin all computers to domain

Last Modified: 2012-08-15
Somehow I managed to delete from AD all of the computers on a 2008 R2 domain.

I added the computers back into the AD manually but the users now get the message that there is no computer account for the computer they are using.

What is the easiest way to re-establish the ability of users to login? Can I somewhere disable the need for a PC to be part of the domain in order for it to be used to login?
