Hi all we have a Terminal Server in a domain, and now when logging on we get the following error

The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain has failed, what is the best and safest way to get this back on the domain without affecting the license server etc.

Are you getting this message on the local machine or on the Terminal Server after you log in?

If it's on the actual Terminal Server - restarting it should correct it. If it doesn't, Take it off the Domain and restart it then add it back into the domain. It should not effect the Licensing server as that is resident on the actual terminal Server.

Interestingly I shut down one of my Domain Controllers (I had 2 but now running on 1 ) and when I logged back in it was ok??

having 2 domain controllers on the same domain would have confused the terminal server - as each DC would have a different authentication from the Term Server and that was most likely the cause of your problem

Yes but I have 2 Domain controllers for redundancy so in an ideal world I would like to keep it.

The Backup Domain controller may not have been set up correctly -

Look at this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EN1F59jB3YI

This should alleviate your Term Services problem

Note that the backup server will only be available for authenticating user logins, Stuff Like exchange etc will not be available should the Primary DC go offline

Ok thanks for the info I will take a look, when you say the Backup domain controller may not have been set up correctly, this environment has been like this for some years it is not new, so something must have changed
