I'm testing Windows 7 Pro clients for compatibility on my Company's network.  We are still using Windows 2000 Domain Controllers (SP4) however our Exchange Server is running on Windows 2003 R2 so we have raised the Domain Version to 2003 R2 to accommodate this as a member server (not a DC).

When can join a Windows 7 Pro client but, every time the Windows 7 computer boots up, it creates an Application Log Error in our Domain Controller (containing all the FSMO Roles).  The error is:

Event ID: 5723
Source: Netlogon

Below is the "text" of the error:
The session setup from the computer 7-TEST failed because there is no trust account in the security database for this computer. The name of the account referenced in the security database is 7-TEST$.

Thank you in advance for any assistance!
