In the process of adding/deleting/re-adding domain member machine trust accounts, there are
many traps for the unwary player and many “little” things that can go wrong.
It is particularly interesting how often subscribers on the Samba mailing list have concluded
after repeated failed attempts to add a machine account that it is necessary to “reinstall”
MS Windows on the machine. In truth, it is seldom necessary to reinstall because of this type
of problem. The real solution is often quite simple, and with an understanding of how MS Windows
networking functions, it is easy to overcome.
