This morning a user restarted his computer and was presented with the following message when attempting to logon:
"The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed".
I was unable to logon to the computer using the local admin account to disjoin and rejoin the domain to reestablish the relationship. I then removed the computer from the network in the SBS 2008 console and recreated it. When attemting to logon now, the message reads:
"The security database on the server does not have a computer account for this workstation trust relationship".
In the SBS Console, under Computers-Status, I see the computer name with the status saying:
"Unknown-No computer is mapped to this computer account (dnsHostName is empty)."
I can see the computer in the DNS Manager and can ping it both by name and IP address.
How do I go about rejoining and reestablishing this computer to the domain? Keep in mind that for some reason, I cannot get on locally to this computer (which, as it always seems to be, is the boss's computer!).
Thank you very much for any help!
