Funkiness joining workstations to a domain

Scenario: when joining a system to the domain and renaming it, some burp happens, and the local system thinks that it has the original computer name and is joined to the domain. The Domain Controller, OTOH, has the NEW name. Either way, there appears to be a problem with the computer password, too, because many aspects of domain funcitonality aren’t working.

Microsoft’s KB (via Google) yields some options:
