  • Hello,

    It might be that the computer accounts themselves are corrupt. You can test by removing the computer from the domain, delete the computer account,
    then add the computer back to the domain and let the computer account be recreated.

    You can also refer the followling article to troubleshoot this problem:

  • Hi thomas, 

    my environment is bit different:

    on this computer (Dafiles, the os i used is  Server 2008 R2), i Joined this as a member server long back, i am getting the error since from one month, in this computer I have 5 hdd  and 1 TB in capacity each   i installed vmware server 2.0  and hosted server 2003 dc on one drive and the other drive has exchange server 2003 running , and rest of the drives are shared drives for internal users,

    if i remove and rejoin this computer makes mess around the domain and exchange, i cant restart this computer anymore the reason is it has got vmware and running DC and exchange servers in this.

    If I reset this computer by using AD users and computer > select this computer and reset this computer from there.
    1. IS this fixes my problem ?
    2. if yes do i need to reboot the system to changes to effect?

    Please clarify my doubts
