Domain Failure

If I lock my computer or boot up while I am connected to the server I get the following code, "the trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain fails."  I then disconnect from the network and login and the computer works and then I can connect back to the network.  I can then access the entire network.  However when the computer locks then i have to disconnect again and login and then reconnect.

The only thing that has changed is that my son coincidently changed the date on the computer.  I have changed back to the correct time and date.  I do not know it this will affect things, but this is the only thing that changed.

Windows 7 Pro and Windows Server 2008

I think you might want to try  to add the computer to a workgroup, remove the computer account from AD and add the computer to the AD again. That should do the trick.

yes time not in sync will cause a problem like this check in your router if it can  use internet time as there are numerous ntp sources like pool.ntp.org which I use in my home network. ntp sources are connected to atomic clocks and are as such the most accurate clocks going

I recently had the same issue happen to a windows 7 machine at our office.  I had to un-join and then rejoin it to our company domain, and make sure that the machine was completely removed from AD.  After I rejoined it and added it back to the correct OU everything seemed to work ok.

I would make copies to just make sure.  But when I did it all the users files were still there.  Also make sure that the PC is deleted from AD.

you also may want to check timezones on the PC to make sure these are correct.
