Right now I'm rebuilding one, testing the connection after each piece of

        I was thinking it might be a license issue but that would show
up in event logs.
        When you rebuild the PC do you bring it back to the same data

data port? Looking for infrastructure causes.
        When you rename the PC do you delete the machine account in AD?
