Can't login to SBS 2008 - "security database on server does not have a computer account. . ."
Posted on 2009-05-18
Somehow, while doing a name change for the server, I created a problem. When I try to login, I get this message, "The security database on the server does not have a computer account for this workstation trust relationship."
Since the SBS admin account is not enabled by default, I can't log in that way. The admin account that was created during setup is the one that is broke, and there are no other admin or other accounts that were created.
Is there a bootdisk or utility that one can use to enable the admin account, so that I can try and fix this? I've seen lots of info on the problem and how to fix it, but since I can't log in, I'm kind of screwed. This is a new install.
