Re-establishing the trust relationship
Posted on 2008-06-26
We had a server crash and had to re-install SBS 2K3 R2 using the exact same computer name and domain name. We have 14 workstations that are all producing the error "The computer 'COMPUTERNAME' tried to connect the the server \\SERVERNAME using the trust relationship established by the DOMAINNAME domain. However, the computer lost the correct security identifier (SID) when the domain was reconfigured. Reestablish the trust relationship". I know I can join each workstation to a workgroup and then re-join them to the domain but is there any easier way? Last time I did that I had to backup and restore each user's settings, network places and mapped drives. I also had some issues with some of the software they were running. Are there any settings that I can change manually?
