Hi,

I am having a problem i.e. a Windows 2000 Domain Controller fail to connect to a Windows NT Server machine acting as a workstation on the Domain. This is surprising as the Windows NT machine can access the Win 2000 DC shared folders whereas the Win 2000 DC is giving the following error

"The Trust relationship between this workstation and the Primary Domain Failed"

Kindly, advise the cause and rectification for this case.

Thanks in advance.

regards,

Farrukh

I don't know the cause of the problem but you can rectify it by removing the server from the domain and then again add it to the domain.

Cheers,

Farukh ,

According to the MS KB article at:-

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=162797

the computer's machine account has the incorrect role or its password has become mismatched with that of the domain database.

RESOLUTION
Log on locally as a local administrator. In the Network tool of Control Panel, select Change and enter a Workgroup name, leaving the domain. Restart the computer and log on locally as a local administrator.

There are two methods to rejoin the domain:

    * You can join the domain from the client if at the same time you can provide an administrator username and password on the domain.

      -or-
    * You can delete the existing computer account in Server Manager, recreate the computer account, synchronize the domain, and then on the client rejoin the domain.
