Error adding machine to Domain

Hi There,

I have recently had to rebuild a desktop and when I try to add it to the our domain I get an error message that says the machine had previously been added to the domain using a different set of credentials and that access is denied.

Can you help?

"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.

Have you tried deleting the computer from the domain in ADUC and rejoining?
Often, it prompts for whether you wish to use/reuse the same account.
The suggestion to delete the computer account in aduc is one option.
Are you using an administrative account to add the system back in? I think the use of a non-administrative account when adding/joining might be the issue you are facing.

Go to Active Directory then Computers. Find the computer “XXXXXXX” and delete it.
Join the computer again to the domain.

As suggested, deleting should do the trick... but resetting the computer account should also do the trick. (Right click the account and select "Reset" in ADUC)
