  • Machine keeps rebooting after joining to domain

    Friends,

    After joining a xp sp2 machine to domain, the machine keeps on restarting itself again and again. Can you please help me out with this issue?
    Thanks,
    Regards,
    Anish

    If you boot into safe mode, do the event logs give you any clues as to what is happening?

    Try last known good -- will be applicable since you havent logged on successfully
    If you get in, try removing computer from domain (change to workgroup on XP box and delete account from ADUC) and confirm you can reboot normally, then try rejoining domain

    If still no luck, it may be time for a format and reinstall

      Have you checked in the event logs, application and system?

        Joining the domain should not produce this result. Was there another operation that you did just before you joined the domain? installed patches, driver updates, etc.? Have you tried a system restore to a point in time just before this started happening?

          Third for the logs request if that's possible.

          If the machine isn't patched fully it could quite easily be a virus. Domain joining could have given it access to install maybe?

              OK, so patch it, virus scan and try rejoining the domain (delete the computer account first)
              Also look for any GPOs that might cause the problem
