    Hi,

    we restored a w2k3 EE Server with TI 9.1 Enterprise Edition.

    Since the last TI-Backup the PC-Account password has changed.
    If i try to logon as a domainuser Windows says: "Could not find computer-account, plz call your Admin"

    How can i reset the computer-Account without unjoining and rejoining the domain?

    Tryed

    Netdom /verify: "Secure channel from ex01 to Elvis is invalid"

    Netdom reset servername /Domain:mydomain /UserO:* /PasswordO:*
    => "Der Zielkontoname ist ungültig"

    Netdom resetpwd resets only DomainController-Accounts.

    Adminrights are ok
    dcdiag ok
    netdiag ok
    dnslookup ok
    reverselookup ok

    Any hints or suggestions?

    ThX

    It's not an Acronis problem. If you restore an old image of a server using any product and the system domain password has changed since the image was created then it's usual practise to remove and rejoin to the domain. How do you expect Acronis to magically fixup the password? I'm guessing that Microsoft haven't given you a nice API to reverse engineer the system password.

    Cheers, Rob.

    i know. it's working as intended.

    but i wouldn't like to un- and rejoin the domain with am exchange server.

    I just asked here because i'm not the first person who has this problem. but i havent found any solutions yet.

    I'd try asking on one of the microsoft.public.exchange newsgroups on news.microsoft.com. You should get an answer as to whether it's safe to rejoin the domain.

    Cheers, Rob.
