Whats the trick to re-naming two servers already in AD?
I had serverPA and ServerA. I went to rename one to ServerAX and ServerPA to the original ServerA. The first server was taking on the name of the second server, along with its IP address.
I shut down the old server, reset its computer object in AD. Then went to new server and changed the IP address and name to the old servers.
Now I cannot login to either. I have tried removing from domain and adding to domain a couple of times since the name changes. I keep getting an error saying either the DC is down (its not) or the computer objext is not found, thats the old 2003 server we are replacing, and in the 2008 server we are getting a similiar issue worded differently, but more about a trust relationship.
Trying to figure out how to get around this now and fix it. Network is fine, IP addresses are correct, I can ping everything.
