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?

You can still lookup password using LAPS admin interface

Thanks for your comment but LAPS admin and also attribute does not show the password.

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