local user password missing, trust relationship failure, cannot reset via AD or NETDOM
Posted on 2011-09-08
trust relationship between this wkstn and primary domain failed and local user passwords now incorrect
Can someone assist me with this error? This is a win7 pro Pavilion dv4 laptop which had an aborted system restore operation. Prior to the restore, I checked local administrator logon to ensure I could access the local domain.
The restore operation aborted w/out successful completion - it was making no progress after over an hour (this was a simple restore to a point 4 days prior - should not take anywhere near that long) and the laptop powered down on it's own after this. Power options were set to HD never when plugged in.
when I rebooted, I could not log onto the network, and am now getting password incorrect when attempting to log onto the local computer domain.
On the windows side, I've tried resetting the account in Active Directory and the NETDOM command to fix - both to negative results.
I need to access the local domain, i can then rejoin to the network. Can anyone offer helpful hints for this? thanks in advance.
