Here is the scenario:
I have several(17) Windows 7 machines joined to a Samba domain. We have a situation where the Win 7 machines need to be renamed.
To accomplish this this is the procedure I have been following: 1) Take machine out of the domain 2) Rename the machine 3) Rejoin the machine to the domain
This process has worked for the first 4 machines perfectly but now for the fifth machine it fails with the following error: the following error occurred attempting to join the domain the handle is invalid
Anyt suggestions would be most appreciated.
Well one repair install and many hours of trouble shooting later it was something I should have checked much earlier
A hinky network card.
