  • Hi,

     

    What is the "Domain Problem"?

    To rejoin the computer to the domain:

    1. Delete the computer account from the directory.

    2. Login with a local administrative user.

    3. Join the computer to a workgroup.

    4. Join the computer to the domain.

     

    Please let me know if you need another help.


    Regards, Liran.

    1- Join the server to WorkGroup (Restart) (takecare you will need Local administrator password)

    2- Go to AD consol  and delete the server account there.

    3- login to server with local administrator.

    4- join the server to your Domain again.  (Restart).

    5- login with Domain account.

  • Domain re-joining is a simple process and proceed as suggested by Liran/M.Adbelhamid.

    As a best practice, you should delegate permissions to a group, and then add users to the group or remove them as needed to join workstations to the domain.

    You can use a tool such as Ldp.exe to delegate permissions to join workstations/memeber servers to a domain.

    Also, pls have a look at Offline Domain Join (Djoin.exe) Step-by-Step Guide

    Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at Local and Domain Default Groups

    "Member server is a DNS server", is that an additional domain controller ? If your answer is Yes, then you need to take some precautions. 

    Pls refer Removing a Domain Controller from a Domain
