Trust Relationship between workstation and domain failed

I have an SBS 2011 server and a Windows 7 workstation that was working normally until one day I started to get the following message on login:

Error (login): The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed. (1789)

I can still use mapped drives, and the email still works with the local Exchange server. Web access is ok. I now have to log into a local account, however, and the redirected folders for documents and the desktop do not appear to be synchronizing any longer.

How do I resolve this issue? This is one of 20+ computers on the network, and the only one that has this error. Thanks!

The easiest way to fix this is to unjoin the computer from the domain and rejoin it.  Make sure you know the local administrator account password or there isn't one set.  Very easy to fix.

If that doesn't fix it, repeat the unjoining of the domain, then do sysprep, then rejoin.  Very easy.

Thanks, that was what I needed. Points split - with the bulk going to the first correct answer.
