Lately I noticed that some computers were lost the connection/trust with Domain Controller as a result users are unable to login.
I tried to unjoin and re-join the computer (after rename the computer name) to Domain but the computer name doesn’t appear in AD.

Please advice

You don't need to rename the computer before you rejoin it.

just join to WORKGROUP then back to domain.  As long as you are using Domain Admin account

That way the computer is the same.

I would suspect the domain controller has rejoined using the original name, hence the reason why you can't see the new name.
