Trust relationship

I am having the trust relationship between this computer and... error.  I don't know the admin password.  I know there are some programs out there that you can boot to and change the password.  Anyone know of any easy to use ones?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I would recommend the one here: http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/

This will not only let you reset the password, but activate the account if it is currently disabled.

It is hard to rejoin the machine which lost secure channel between CLinet a and domain, tyou may verify this through NLTest but need logon to the machine to do that. But you can bypass this using Utilman.exe utility.

1 Boot the server/machin with OS bootable CD
2 When you reach the first screen asking about the language, currency and keyboard format, Click Next.
3 On the next page, down in the lower left hand side, click on the “Repair your computer” link.
4 select the “Use recovery tools that can help fix problems starting Windows.
5 Select an operating system to repair” option, choose an operating system from the list and Click Next.
6 Choose a recovery tool
7. you will have a CMD where type
     C:\
     cd windows\system32
     ren utilman.exe utilman.exe.bak
     copy cmd.exe utilman.exe
8 Reboot with OS bootable CD
9 Once the computer boots up normally, press the key combination Windows Key + U (at logon screen)
10 Reset password using "net user administrator password1" on CMD page popped
11. Close CMD and login with new password

Do your domain rejoin and revert teh change using cmd

C:
 cd windows\system32
 del utilman.exe
 ren utilman.exe.bak utilman.exe
