Trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed
We currently have a windows 2003 domain and 8 Domain Controllers spread out in the organization. The setup is as follows:-
- HQ - 3 Domain Controllers
- Site 2 - 2 Domain Controllers (FSMO role holders)
and 3 other branch sites have a Domain Controller each.
An issue started cropping up on machines getting the Trust relationship issue when users try to login to them. The machine accounts seem to be alive and well on AD when it gets this trust issues and need to be re-added. Even after re-adding the machine to the domain some machines get the same error again a week or so after. We have yet to isolate it to a certain Operating System or maybe a culprit GPO. Right now it seems to be randomly happening across the domain. Is there any way of actually pinpointing the cause of this error that occurs on the machines??
