  • I had similar issue with :

    • You can keep the computer name same, but specify the OU in cs.ini file that has the object
    • you need to add the domain account to cs.ini file. And that account should have domain join access for comp. account.
    • If any of the security setting is missing or OU is not specified properly, the TS will detect an object with same name and wont add it to domain.
