Hello EE,

I have a VMware machine running windows 2008 R2 that was built from a template.  Now that I'm troubleshooting the odd issues I discovered the following error in event viewer:

The computer or domain BQ trusts domain eu.com.  (This may be an indirect trust.)  However, BQ and eu.com have the same machine security identifier (SID).  NT should be re-installed on either BQ4 or eu.com.

The problem is my BQ server is running some applications and I'd hate to have to wipe and reload it from scratch.  Is there a way to resolve this without losing all the data on it already?

Just execute Sysprep, and select Generalize.

This will generate a new sid for the machine.

@Andrew Hancock - will it affect any of the data or apps on my server?  (wipe anything)?

No it will not wipe any data.

It will reset the Machine SID.

So you will want to

1. Full Backup before you start.
2.Check applications after you have run Sysprep.

do I need to take it off the domain first?

No reason to remove from Domain, Sysprep will do that for you.
