Have a client with a laptop(HP 530) running Win 7 Pro(32-bit)
They have an SBS2011 server with domain setup, have about 30 laptops on the domain
5 of the laptops are the HP 530 models
1 of these laptops is throwing the error 'Trust relationship between this computer and primary domain failed' when trying to login
This started happening about 6 months ago - first time it happened I removed account from AD and disjoined from the domain on the laptop - rejoined and all is well
Couple of months passed and again this happened - again I disjoined domain, removed account from AD, rejoined and all is well...
Now its back happening again
Started looking for what could be causing this issue I found another answer on this site that pointed to checking the SID for the computer - to make sure the SID matches the SID of the computer account in AD
Turns out it doesn't match, they are different
This was the answer I was using - http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/File_Servers/Active_Directory/Q_27672173.html
Ok so in ADSIEDIT I've drilled down to the Computers OU - selected Properties and checked the objectSID - is this the correct property(just before I continue?)
My main question - since I've previously removed the computer object from AD, removed laptop from domain etc...and these errors still crop up - is it as simple as changing the SID property in ADSIEdit to match the laptop? Or is there more to it?
If not - how do I remove the account properly to get this machine up and running again?
I've attached the eventlog from the laptop for reference in case anyone needs to review that, anything else needed let me know...
