Windows 7 Workstations Trust Relationship Failed

Posted on 2014-02-21

I have a mixture of Windows 7 workstations with Windows XP and after a power failure in my environment, all the Windows 7 workstations are coming up with the Trust Relationship Failed error.

I have tried removing them from the AD and readding them, but they still come up with a failed trust relationship each time we reboot.  Usually, removing and adding solves the problem when I've seen it in the past.

Any ideas?

Check that all the relevant services on running on the DCS (how many DCs do you have) e.g.
Active directory domain services, Netlogon, DNS server etc. Run a DCDiag tool to check that it is working properly.

We even did better than that and deleted the computer account all together, still no luck.

Two DCs -- can we run DCDIAG during the day?

We have this issue crop up from time to time, and we have found running through the network wizard on the workstation 99% of the time resolves the issue.  We originally were doing the remove and readd to the domain, but the network wizard seems to work quicker and faster.  

Plus, if you remove and readd, then you need to recreate any permissions or group memberships.  The network wizard seems to reset the computer account/password and retains all group memberships, rights, etc...

Yes, that is usually the case.  But in this case it does not work.

Is this issue occurs with all the Win7 workstations or couple of machines?

Just take one corrupt machine for testing purpose and update NIC drivers, then join it to domain. I'm sure it will work this time. Also check for event ID netlogon 5719 in Win7 workstations, if it exists then you have to update the NIC drivers.

Netlogon Event ID 5719

Have you tried the NET DOM command?

netdom resetpwd /server:domaincontroller /userd:domain\USERNAME /passwordd: *

I use this instead of doing the disjoin/rejoin process.

Netdom meant for domain controllers not for workstations.

Have the DC's had graceful shutdowns or did they just go off too?

Using a Win 7 PC as a test, do a System restore to a point in time prior to the power loss then remove / re-add to the Domain.  See if that sticks.

It does sound AD related but it might be worth giving that a shot.

The power pulled them all down, no graceful shut downs.  We noted that the time was off on the DC -- we have set the time back to match and are going to try rejoining on Monday.

Have the DCs since been given a graceful shutdown / restart? I have seen DCs behave erratically until they have been given a clean, graceful restart following an incident like this.

The issue was the time offset -- once that was corrected everything worked fine.
