we have Windows Server 2003 server as DC along with few Windows 7 machines. Yesterday two of  Windows 7 machines have been receiving the error Trust Relationship between workstation and domain fails and users are unable to login to the machine. We know of a fix by removing the machine from the domain and re-joining the machine.  i am wondering whether this is going to happen again ,I am currently trying to find the root cause to this problem your help will be appreciated

    Was the computer object/deleted edited in AD?
    Look out for event logs both on AD and on Client.
    Client's logs will provide details as to when it started happening and you could co-relate the time stamp to some event that happened on the client or on the server?

    This is becoming a bit of a common problem with windows 7, there have been 3 questions today on EE in the windows 7 section already!

    I have found the only option is to put it back on the domain as you stated above, and when I have they have had no further problems.  This isn't to say that it won't happen again though.

    I've recently seen on our network SMB signing issues and access denied messages in captures between my Windows XP machines and 2008 domain controllers.  I wonder if the opposite is not happening in this case.  Could there be SMB security sigining issues between Windows 7 machines and Windows 2003 and if so why has this suddenly cropped up?  A recent windows update perhaps?  Just a thought that may be unrelated.
