i am using Acronis True Image Workstation with Universal Restore to image a Windows Vista Business Dell system to an identical Dell system.  After I login as a new user, i am able to setup the user and all is well.  sometime after the setup, when i login as that user later, i receive the following error message:

The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed.

if i unplug the ethernet cable i can login, then plug it back in and all is well.  this is the same with many of these new dell workstations..  i have tried removing it from the domain, and renaming the computer.  it works for awhile and then i encounter the same issue again.  i'm not sure if this is a SID issue or not.

i am running a windows 2003 r2 domain with all updates on servers and vista image.

thanks-

This is for Windows NT, and I don't know whether it applies to Win2003 Server:

the link you sent indicates:

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.

as i indicated above:

try this:

- remove it from the domain
- rename it.
- delete the domain account from AD
- recreated the domain account
- join back to the domain.

again, that's what i did.  i think i figured out the problem.  i changed the "image system" to a workgroup membership.  then after i image a system, i would rename that system and then join it to the domain.
