The security database on the server does not have a computer account for this workstation trust relationship on a domain controller

I have a domain controller that I built recently with the goal of migrating my windows 2003 domain up to windows 2008. The domain in question is a child domain in a larger forest. Everything was working smoothly until I installed the Identity Management for UNIX component. I rebooted the domain controller and now I get this message when I try to log in.

The security database on the server does not have a computer account for this workstation trust relationship

I've seen this before on workstations, and through removing them from the domain, and then adding them, that goes away. But I can't log on locally to a domain controller, so I have no idea how I can rejoin the system to the domain.

Anyone have ideas on how to fix this?

You can try resetting the machine password of the DC   http://support.microsoft.com/kb/325850

Any error events in your logs?

I personally haven't run into the issue (i.e. installing the Unx component and having this issue)

Thanks

Thanks for the tip, it was unsuccessful though in solving my issue. The event logs show no errors except in the applications logs where there are a couple errors, I'll paste them in here.

Source: IDMU Server for NIS
Event ID: 4098, Server for NIS has stopped.
Event ID: 8196, This copy of Server for NIS is not licensed or the license has expired.

Source: IDMU Password Synchronization
Event ID: 16386, Default encryption key is insecure. Please generate new encryption key.

Source: Security-Licensing-SLC
Event ID: 1001, The Software Licensing Service failed to start. hr=0x80070002


these all repeat every time there's been a reboot.

I've since removed the identity management for UNIX component in directory services restore mode, but still have the same issue.

the error logs that I see now are as follows

applicaton log
source: security-licensing-slc
eventID: 1001, The Software Licensing service failed to start. hr=0x80070002, [2, 4]

system log
source: Service Control Manger Eventlog Provider
eventID: 7026, The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: spldr

All other event logs are clean of errors
