  • Adding A workstation to a domain when the account already exiss

    Hi Guys,

    Ive just implemented WDS onto our network and am trying to write a script that renames and joins the pc to our doman after image deployment.

    The renaming bit is fine and joining it is fine if it is a brand new pc with a new name, however im trying to find a work around so that if it is being reimaged we dont need to delete the existing account under AD and that it just inherits group membership etc from the already existing computer account.

    We have a system in place where this does happen but it installs windows everytime rather than an image so it take an age to do a single pc.

    In the WDS setup im using the netdom tool to add it to the domain.

    Help wold be appreciated

    Cheers

    When joining a new computer to the domain when the computer account already exists you should reset the existing computer account first. This should allow you to join the domain using the original computer name.
