Servers Error

I have started seeing this on some new build servers.  

It happens on server 2012 and server 2K8R2.

Our domain level is 2003

After a newly build server is on the domain.  I will pass it off to applications support to do their software install.

After about an hour I get the below error.

I have seen this before normally I just remove the server from the domain delete the computer account on the DCs add it again and all is fine.  But as of late that does not help.

Error;
the security database on the server does not have a computer account workstation trust relationship


any help would be great.

Those are fine, but I would also expect to see:

HOST/Scomputername
HOST/FQDN

Can you confirm those are missing

1. Open up Active Directory Users & Computers pointed to the domain the computer account resides in
2. From the “View” pull-down menu, make sure that “Advanced Features” is checked
3. Navigate to the part of your organizational unit (OU) structure where the computer account for this server resides
4. Open the Properties for the computer object
5. Choose the “Attribute Editor” tab on the Properties dialog box
6. Check the Attributes dNSHostName & servicePrincipalName – anywhere that a fully qualified hostname is specified (e.g. myserver.mydomainname.com), make sure that the entry matches the hostname you have configured when you go here on your server: Start -> Computer -> Right-Click, Properties -> Change Settings (under “Computer name, domain… settings”) -> Full Computer Name

DNShostname is correct but serviceprincipalname is strange.  I have:

cvs/computername
WSMAN/computername
WSMAN/FQDN


What should it be?

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

Those are missing I have added them.

It seems to be working now.

Any idea on cause?

I will leave it for a day to make sure it works then close this off and give you the points.

Thanks for the help

Not sure why these would be missing after a domain join - possibly something during the new build process.  Do you use templates or images to build new servers?

Is the user joining the machines to the domain restricted in any way or is it a full admin?

We do use templates as these are VMs

I am using my Admin account its a Domain admin account.  (No enterprise but I should not need that)

Still would love to know why this is happening but the fix worked.

Thanks
