Sometimes the proverbial excrement hits the fan and I need to reinstall the OS on a laptop or something. This isn't an issue.
Normally, I follow the following procedure:
- delete the computer from the AD
- reinstall OS
- set the host-name to match the old setting
- rejoin the domain
I'm wondering... what would happen (if anything) if I skipped the first step and just rejoined the domain with the same host-name?
