Rebooted my system for a windows update. When it came back up,
It said the trust between my workstation and DC was broken.
(Running Windows 7x64 SP1). Very odd, haven't seen that for a while.
I thought it would be easy: unjoin/rejoin. But upon trying to rejoin,
The join operation was not successful. This could be because an existing
computer account having name 'ANY' was previous created using a
different set of credential. Use a different computer name, or
contact your administrator to remove any stale conflicting account
The error was Access is denied.
I also tried it from the smb DC using 'net dom join...', but get the same
error: access is denied.
Have never seen this. I've tried changing the name to a computer name
never existing on my network, but got the same message with no matter
what computer name I put in.
