Is it possible to re establish a trust relationship in a 2003 domain without rejoining the domain and setting up profiles etc again? And if so how?
thanks in advance

    You're not referring to a trust between two domains, right?

    You have to rejoin the domain, but once rejoined, the account information on the profiles should be fine.

    The trust is between workstations and server.  The OS on the server had been reinstalled and I want the workstations to be able to log on without getting the trust message.

    No, forget it.  The domain has to be in-tact.  If you've rebuilt the domain, you're going to be able to do it.  I believe there are tools that will migrate profiles for you... but if the domain is lost, you're going to have problems.

    Hi - Take a look at this tool

    User Profile Wizard 3.0 is the latest version of ForensiT's powerful workstation migration tool. User Profile Wizard will migrate your current user profile to your new domain account so that you can keep all your existing data and settings.
