Workstation Trust Relationship

A workstation which has been connecting to the server all along suddenly will not connect.  When password has been entered, the following message is displayed:

"The security database on the server does not have a computer account for this workstation trust relationship."

The workstation is running Windows 7 Professional.

The server is running Windows Small Business Server 2003.

On the server, using Server Management > Set Up Client Computers, the account was removed and re-added.  Now it has no DNS name.

Also using Server Management > Advanced Management > Active Directory Users and Computers, under the domain name > My Business > SBS Computers, the problem computer account was reset.

Also tried disconnecting from the domain and re-connecting, but that did not work either.

I really need to get this workstation back on board.  Help would be greatly appreciated.

did you rejoin it to the domain using the sbsconnect site?  You may be missing several parameters you have to change in ADSI edit

What is the subconnect site?  I tried to re-connect by opening Internet Explorer and entering the site for the server plus "ConnectComputer" which was the instruction from the server.

that would be the right way to do it.  the problem might be the DNS suffix.  this might give you some ideas

Thanks, SuperTaco.  I visited that site earlier today.  I will see if any of those ideas work for my situation.

Still no progress on my problem.  I have started over with disconnecting from the domain, assigning a new computer name, adding the new computer to the server via Server Management, and when I try to connect (http://servername/connectcomputer), nothing happens.  

Please help.

I found instructions at the site below which helped me remove and re-connect the workstation to the server:

http://techsoeasy.wordpress.com/2007/07/25/how-to-properly-rejoin-a-client-workstation-to-an-sbs-2003-domain/

Now that the workstation has been re-connected, there is a new problem for which I will seek help with a new question.

Thank you, SuperTaco, for trying to provide some guidance.  Unfortunately, the suggestions in your recommended site did not work for me.
