Dear Sirs,

I need to get the original machine back into AD. When I try to Join the machine in domain, I received the "This machine does not qualify for rejoining ... it has been tampered" error message.

Removed all computer entries from SCCM. In case the error message is related to something else, please advise how to proceed.

    So the machine is in a workgroup now?? If not, make it a member of the workgroup first, then add it to the domain again.
    And this is a workstation, right?
