Two computers on our domain, both intermittently on the network, were having issues with 'lost trust relationship.' I discovered that they both had the same computer name on our domain. When I confirmed this, I removed Comp #1 from the domain, then rejoined. Next I renamed Comp #2, then unjoined and rejoined the domain. Problem: Comp #2 now appears in AD, but with the properties of Comp #1; and Comp #1 can no longer be found as a computer object in AD; it's as though they merged into one under the new name after it joined the domain.
How can this be resolved so they are both computer objects in AD with their individual names and properties?
