  • Joining a computer to domain

    I am seeing this weird problem. Some users join a computer to a domain. Looks like computer joined to the domain...and you are asked to reboot the computer.

    But in AD you can not find that computer object. Instead you see this computer object with the same id as your username. So for example if i join a computer with my user-id chris1.....a computer object of chris1 is created in computers container. Help!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Any error messages on the join? -- I have seen "unable to join under new name, using old name" -- is the old computer name the same as the username?
