Hello All, For some reasons, I needed to format and re-install my Windows 2003 Enterprise server. I re-setup it with same fqdn name and other stuffs alongwith AD as they were before. Now, all clients (WinXP) can connect and use the server resources but everytime they connect to sever, following errors are logged:
Event ID: 5513
The computer COMP1 tried to connect to the server \SERVER using the trust relationship established by the EXAMPLE domain. However, the computer lost the correct security identifier (SID) when the domain was reconfigured. Reestablish the trust relationship.
Event ID: 2723
The session setup from computer 'COMP1' failed because the security database does not contain a trust account 'COMP1$' referenced by the specified computer.
Event ID: 5805
The session setup from the computer COMP1 failed to authenticate. The following error occurred: 
Access is denied.
I tried to re-join the client machine from client, but by doing so it creates separate user profile folder in 'Documents and Settings', and user's earlier preferences are gone. Is there any other way to re-join client machines to the domain? Thanks in advance.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You aren’t trying to re-domain the domain. You are trying to join a new domain.

If you have a backup of the Active Directory database you can restore that backup to the new domain and get back everything to the state that is was before. If not you’ll need to remove all the workstations and join them to the new domain (even though the domain has the same name as before it is still a new domain) and get new profile directories created for everyone, then migrate all the data from their old profile to the new profile.

    Perhaps, the 5513 error appears if ur computer could ping the domain controller but not the all time from both sides. By disabling XP firewall when the computer re-join to the domain. I am not going to long best way to see here for MS Guide.... And for next 2 errors, it sounds like the profile copying probs. Please Link Here for the process
