A couple of days back our Server crashed and we could not resurrect Active Directory. So we reconstructed Active Directory information from scratch. The usernames have been retained as they used to be before crash.
We have Windows-7 client machines that get authenticated by this Active Directory. As a user, I am unable to log in when I connect to the network as this user (remember we reconstructed Active Directory with exact same user names). However, if I disconnect from network and login, I am able to log into my computer and work usually. This happens because, clearly the Active Directory credentials are cached on the user machine.
What I want to be able to know is:
- What is a quickest way to be able to 'rejoin' the Domain?
- Is it possible to clear this user-machine cache and join the Domain fresh?
