Hi Experts,

                         One Domain with primary and additional doman controllers (Windows 2008 r2 ee)in first site. One more Additional controller in second site. Functional set as windows 2003 and there are 100 clients machines which are running windows 7 Proffessional. Some times while logging into domain in clients machines with domain id. It gives the error as " trust relationship between the workstation and primary  domain controller failed Windows 7"

As a one time soultion we had re-joined it domain. Same cant be done for all the clients whenever their facing that issue.

The only way I have found to resolve this issue in the past is to remove from the doamin and rejoin. Sorry if it's not the answer you wanted. Don't think there is any way around it.

The official cause as described by Microsoft is "The computer's machine account has the incorrect role or its password has become mismatched with that of the domain database."

The official fix:
"Log on locally as a local administrator. In the Network tool of Control Panel, select Change and enter a Workgroup name, leaving the domain. Restart the computer and log on locally as a local administrator.
 
There are two methods to rejoin the domain:
•You can join the domain from the client if at the same time you can provide an administrator username and password on the domain.
-or-
•You can delete the existing computer account in Server Manager, recreate the computer account, synchronize the domain, and then on the client rejoin the domain."
