Why can't a Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise server not join a domain?

I upgraded a Windows 2008 R2 Standard server to a Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise server while it was still part of an existing domain.  I then removed the server form the domain and made part of its own Workgroup.   Now, when I try to re-add the server to the existing domain the GUI, where you make a stand alone server become the Member of an existing domain says the following:" You can change the name and workgroup membership of this computer.  You cannot join a computer running WIndows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise to a domain."  The area where I can type the existing domain that I want this server to be part of is now dimmed out.  Please advise.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Here's a snapshot of where I normally would join a stand alone server to a domain.

Saige,

Thank you for the tips.  All the functions returned and I am now able to rejoin the server back to the domain.
