...where we migrated our domain to another name and unfortunately, although we could "pre-populate" the list with all the client computer names, I still had to touch each one of the client machines to allow them to join the new domain.
Sorry, but we couldn't find a way.
Hope this helps.
Scenerio: Domain controller is replaced with one of the same name. It is a Windows 2003 server box. There was NO backup to restore. The user accounts were keyed in manually in active directory. The computer accounts (objects) still have to be created. The client computers (winXP pro,sp2) are still looking for the old domain controller. If I create a new computer object for a client and use the UUID from that client, I still cannot get into computer management via Active Directory Users and Computers for that client. PLEASE HELP ME FIX THIS ! I do not want to go to 250 computers and re-join each one to the domain !
