I have to pick you guys' brain on this one.
I am not shy to say, I am new to administering Linux... But today, I am in big trouble.

Basically, I had an SGI (Irix) system running just fine.
Server's main board died on me, so I replaced the whole system with another existing system. I took the harddrive out of the old system and booted it into the new machine to try to lose the least amount of data possible.

I found that I need to add this machine to the AD. When I try to add the machine I get an Error 5 Access Denied error, and I have Event ID 5722 in my Event Viewer on my PDC.

Everything I look at, says SID (Security Identifier) needs to be modified...

Anyone have any idea what I can do to fix this???

I suggested to my boss, rename the machine to something else, and than add it to the domain. Once it is live and active on the domain, we could rename it back to what we want it to be, however he does not like that idea.

I dont have any WINS entries for these machines either and I seem to be having issues logging into 1 other machine, also Linux, which is on the domain, but wont allow me to authenticate on it through a Network share, however same user and pass will let me log in locally. (SSH connection).

Thank you in advance.

Sounds like a Windows password to me - Event ID 5722 is has to do with the computer account not being authenticated by the domain controler
google for Event ID 5722, lot's of info there.

PDC -> you're still using Windows NT ?

I think your workaround to create a new computer account, then rename it, sounds like a plan.
