Suddenly, Windows 7 professional is unable to build the trust relationship with the domain
Posted on 2011-04-21
We have a Windows 2003 DC with 10 Windows 7 workstations connected to it.
Today and suddenly, one of the Windows 7 workstations is not allowing to login to any domain account, only accepting local administrator login. It's giving the message:
"the trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed"
In the Windows system log, there is an error:
"This computer couldn't authenticate with \\dc.ourdomain.com, a windows domain controller for OURDOMAIN, and therefore this computer may deny logon requests. This inability to authenticate might be caused by another computer on the same network using the same name or the password for this computer account is not recognized. If this message appears again, contact your system administrator"
I am sure that there is no other computer on the same network having the same computer name. Also I don't know what they mean by the password. If they mean the user password, nobody has changed it.
Any quick help?
