Hi all, i have copied a vm from one location to another started the VM and i get the trust relationship is lost between workstation and domain. it looks like someone has started the original machine so maybe this has caused the issue. im unable to log on either to the domain or to the server locally as i get the same error. Any ideas how i can fix this?

thanks in advance

Yes, this would happen, if the original has been started.

This applies to a physical or virtual computer.

1. Login as Local Administrator

2. Remove from Domain.

3. Restart Computer

4.  Login as Local Administrator

5. Add to Domain

6. Restart Computer

7. Fixed.

Trust relationship is domain related and can happen when you are copying or imaging machines incorrectly. You should be able to login to the machine "locally" when this happens. From there you can remove then readd back to the domain. This should correct the issue you are having.

I would make sure that the source VM you copied from is off. You can also go into ADUC and reset the secure connection which will do basically the same thing as remove/re-adding to the domain.

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

if you cannot login, because you do not know the Local Administrator password and account.
