How to rejoin computer into domain

I had this question after viewing Cannot rejoin computer to domain when MS LAPS is used.

Hello Experts,

We have LAPS set up and now we are facing some issues.
Computers gives trust relationship error and after removing it from AD, we can not add them into domain again. We don't have password to login in Laptop with Administrator account.

How can I resolve it?

Then perhaps it was never managed via LAPS. Reset password with password reset tool

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

You can also try this

Run Active Directory Users and computer on your DC
Navigate to your domain
Right click on Computers -> New -> Computer
Put you computer name (Remember that Pre-Windows 2000 field must have up to 8 characters without special characters)

Save

Restart computer and try log-on as Domain Admin

After that you can change membership and remove domain admin account from local computer

There were duplicate name created in AD and previous one lose secure channel and there were no password found in the GUI. So, decided to reformat the OS(it's not a solution yet). But for time being we have to do this.Thanks to all who put efforts to resolve this issue..
