"The name or security ID SID of the domain specified is inconsistent with the trust information for that domain"
Posted on 2004-08-30
I recently started on a Windows 2003 test domain. I have 6 Windows 2003 servers (SERVER1-6) all patched with all the security updates and antivirus. I ran DCPROMO on SERVER1; it’s now my only DC, DNS server, WINS server, and DHCP (which is not being used at this point). I created a new user (USER1) and made USER1 a member of DOMAIN ADMINS, SCHEMA ADMINS, and DOMAIN USERS. I can log on to SERVER1 as USER1 with no problems. Now on SERVER2, I join the test domain with no problems using the USER1 account I created. I now try to log onto SERVER2 as USER1 and receive this error message “The name or security ID SID of the domain specified is inconsistent with the trust information for that domain”. I can log on to SERVER1 as this user and I log on to SERVER2 as the local admin but I can not log on to SERVER2 as USER1. Thanks in advance for you time.
