I'm running Windows Server 2003 Small Business. I added a new Windows 7 Pro PC with the same name as another Windows 7 Pro. workstation by accident. I now get the following error:  The security database on the server does not have a computer account for this workstation trust relationship. I changed the name of the new PC to another name and got that logged right in. Now I can't log into the other Windows 7 PC. I can't even log in locally to the PC. if I try to log in as administrator it says my account has been disabled.

If you unplug the network cable you will be able to log in with a domain account that has logged into that PC before (hopefully your admin account so you can take it back off the domain and re-enable the local admin account).

By unpluging the network cable it wont try and authenticate with the server and use credentials saved on the PC.

Good luck!

That allowed me to log in locally now. How do I get the trust relationship established again?

You will need to log on locally, dis join from the domain and re-join. It happens alot with Vista and 7 clients

Too many email signature updates to deal with?

Do you feel like you are taking up all of your time constantly visiting users’ desks to make changes to email signatures? Wish you could manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users? Well, there is an easy way!

For what its worth, you may also want to dis join the other PC, name them differently and re-join that too. Just make sure the old computer accounts have been purged from AD

Hope that helps

sorry i just re-read your question, if you have already re-named the other PC dont worry about that. Just dis join the PC that is having the problem and re-join to your domain :)
