Hello EE. We have a windows 2003 R2 server running AD, DNS, DHCP, and WINS. Intermittently I have users complaining about logging in to their domain pcs. They get "No Trust Relationship.......". When I check their settings the domain name has changed from the netbios name to the FQDN. When I change it back to the netbios name everything works fine. I am experiencing this throughout the domain. Even when I change it back it goes back to the FQDN setting some time later. What could be causing this?

Is there only one DC ?


DCDIAG /V /D /E /C > c:\DCDIAG-srvname.log
NETDIAG /V > c:\NETDIAG-srvname.log

look for FAIL or errors in the above logs

I hope this helps !

No, as a matter of fact we have 4 DCs. 2 at the main location and 2 at 2 different location. It is one domain spread across different subnets. The remote locations are connected via site to site VPN tunnels.
