One of the users in my domain environment is getting this message while trying to login to his account on his local windows 7 Ult X64 machine.
The security database on the server does not have a computer account for this workstation trust relationship.
System wont let him in until he physically disconnect the network cable from his machine. then he logs in to his AD account and reconnects the network cable.
I did some research on the error and found few things but need an opinion on how to proceed...
MS Windows 2003 x64 domain controller
local user (no vpn)
user has no administrative rights
Error : “The security database on the server does not have a computer account for this workstation trust relationship” on Windows Vista with sp1
What to check
Make sure your computer account is not disabled in Active Directory users and computers
configuration/administrative templates/network/dns client/primary DNS suffix in GPO and make sure its correct or defined
A) Start > Run > ADSIEDIT.MSC
B) Go to Domain Partition and mark the affected computer
C) Rightclick and Properties.
D) Doubleclick ServicePrincipalName
E) Add new value: HOST/yourcomputername.yourdomain.xyz or whatever HOST is missing.
so I did that and here's what I see under that computer account / servicePrincipalName:
all the other machines dont have the "RestrictedKrbHost" part under servicePrincipalName.
should I delete it ?
someone is suggesting to change the domain FQDN to a short name from domainname.local to domainname
Anyone has any suggestions ?
Thank you !
