So I have some old XP machines that are being kept around to run an ancient DOS based database we still need occasional access to. I decided to instead of dealing with all these old buggy machines to just create a Virtualbox image for them. So I did the following
1 - Converted one physical machine into a Virtualbox image
2 - Added Computer to the Domain
3 - Cloned Virtual Box into 3 identical machines
However now I want to name them Virtual1, Virtual2 and Virtual3 on the domain but I have already added them to the domain because I added the Original image to the domain before I cloned it.
When I go to change the Machine Name, it is trying to rename it in active directory. I realized in retrospect I probably should have waited to add them to the domain till after I cloned them.
So what I am asking is can I "Re-add" the Cloned machines as Virtual2 and Virtual3 or should I just go back to my original image, remove it from the domain, then clone it?
