Adding user to workstation in Active Directory

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I am attempting to create a new user on a workstation on a network running server 2003 / Active Directory.   I have added the user on the server / active directory.

When I go to the workstation and enter user name and put in the name of domain, I get the following error message:
The user could not be added because the trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed.

I have went into ad / manage computers and selected reset.  I still get the same message as above.
