I have a virtual server running Windows Server 2008 R2 joined to a domain. The guy who cloned the this server from another server of ours on the domain, didn’t
sysprep the clone before it was renamed and joined to the domain.
So I ran
sysprep then rejoined the domain, but now I can’t login to it with any domain accounts. It recognizes that it’s a part of the domain, but only the local administrator can log in. I had a local account before sysprep, and it remained afterward. I deleted it, tried again, but still no dice.
Problems logging in to AD typically revolve around either DNS problems or Time Synchronization problems. Verify that the VM’s time is within 5 min of your domain controllers’ times. And verify that the VM is pointing to the proper DNS servers.
You should also be able to get some clues as to what is going on from the Event Logs on the VM when logging in as your local account.
- Unable to login to a domain computer using a Local Administrator account
- Unable to Modify Files on Windows Share from OS X on Domain User Account
- Set Windows 7 Default Login to a Non Domain Account
- Migrate stand-alone user account to a domain account
- login to an off-domain machine with a domain account
