I'm trying to rename a server in a domain which has already given me a few problems. Since a long time i cannot ping the hostname of it from another computer in the domain.
The DC is a Windows Server 2008 R2 and the computer with the problem is a Windows Server 2003 R2.
I tried to run Winsockxpfix, added the WINS server changed the IP, deleted the computer in the DC and re attached it. Removed the computer from the domain and joined a workgroup and re tried to join it in the domain, but can't seem to figure it out.
The message of the error when trying to rename it is:
The following error occurred attempting to rename the computer XXX. The network path was not found.
