Re: Can't join computer to domain after sysprep

Hello Jaleel,

Is the image created from a domain member machine or from standalone workstation?

Best regards

Re: Can't join computer to domain after sysprep

Please try using this tool to change the SIDof the comp:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/s.../bb897418.aspx

now, try rejoining the domain.

If it doesn't work, try pinging the domain. Does it give a response?

Re: Can't join computer to domain after sysprep

Jabez, this would not normally be the case but he is welcome to try it. If
he was adding a computer to a domain and there was 1. a computer with the
same name or 2. a computer with the same SID, and the account used to
authenticate creating an object under the particular OU didn't have
overwrite objects permission, the error would be "access denied" (I think
it's error 59 if I'm not mistalen, but it's been a few years since I've
coded a joindom), not "invalid domain". His problem is browsing. What he can
do is confirm that the NIC is active with DNS and WINS before it tries to
find the domain, and try joining the domain 2 different ways. 1. FQDN like
subdomain.domain.local or 2. Join the domain via it's NetBIOS short name. If
the NIC is active and the DCs are playing well, both should actually work.
But to isolate it from NetBIOS to DNS, he should try both ways.

Re: Can't join computer to domain after sysprep

Hey Harry,

Yep I am aware that this would not normally be the case, but I've seen quite
some different errors if there's duplicate SID - and yes one of them is
"Access is denied" or something similar.

But if all fails, trying this step wouldn't hurt. ;)
