Create Computer Account Issue

Sep 14, 2011 at 2:41 PM

I have ran into an issue when creating Computer accounts. The "Create Computer Account" works as far as creating the object in AD, however I can't join computers to the domain with these objects. Also if I try to reset one of these computer accounts I get an error about the password not meeting complexity requirements.

I spent a lot of time scratching my head trying to figure out why and eventually discovered that if I look at the properties of one of these objects in ADSI Edit they show up as user accounts.

The sAMAccountType on a computer account created with this IP is 805306368 = (NORMAL_USER_ACCOUNT). The sAMAccountType on a manually created computer object is 805306369 = ( Machine_Account ).

If I am missing something please let me know.
