  • Different domain names

    I have a domain controller running windows 2003 standard edition, the domain name is abc.com but appears as abc0.com on all workstations, I have recently been appointed to manage this network and I am having all sorts of issues all I know is that this machine was joined to the domain while the previous domain controller was still running. The server under computer name tab of system properties displays the domain name as abc.com but even if I try to add a new machine to the domain it gets the domain name abc0.com, what do I need to do in order to assign the correct domain name to the workstations ie: abc.com (other than reinstalling the OS )I will appriciate any help, thanks in advance!

    You need to do a metadata cleanup of the non nonexistent domain
