VMWare Workstation Snapshots and Domain
Posted on 2013-10-23
I've been facing an annoying situation with my VM Images and wanted to check if there's any trick to overcome that.
I have several test VM images I use, one of those act as the AD and DNS server (Windows Server 2008). On my other VMs, I frequently make changes and do trials and prior to critical changes, I take Snapshots.
Whenever I go back to my previous snapshot, I receive the following error in my domain login: 'The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed' Everytime this happens, I have to login as the local admin, remove the VM from the domain, then readd it. This takes several minutes because of the mandatory restarts.
I don't remember this issue existed with a Windows 20003 Server.
Is there a way to stop this from happening? While I believe this warning can be important in companies and real life deployments but this is a lab setup, I control everything.
Thank you in advance.
