You have to log on to the said computer as the local administrator, remove it from the domain, then add it back again. This is the only way to re-build the trust with the domain.

the problem is the laptop is in a different site, and the user wont have Domain Admin access to do it.. Also, i cant ping it as its not in A.D.

Any work around?
