Error 1789 The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed.
Posted on 2010-11-18
I have a windows 7 pro workstation that won't let anyone with domain credentials log in.
We get Error 1789 "Error 1789 The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed."
The two solutions I have found online (installing a hotfix or remove/add to domain) will not work because the workstation is saying that the local admin account is disabled. I need help coming up with a solution to get into this workstation and either install the hotfix or enable the local admin.
My two current thoughts are to try and remote access the registry and enable the local admin account (don't know if this is even possible yet) or remove the hard drive and try to apply the hotfix like you would an os install or something (don't know if this is possible either). Lastly, I'm sick today and my mind is in a fog. Someone help!
