So far I have tried changing the workgroup name, joining the domain, using the admin credentials, using the user credentials, setting up the computer account on the server and then trying to join the computer to the domain.
- Take the workstation out of the domain and put it in a workgroup.
- Shut down the machine.
- Check AD to make sure that the machine name does not appear in the computer organizational unit. If it does exist, delete it.
- Then turn the machine back on.
- Join the domain.
