The reason why this problem happens is because of a "password mismatch." Passwords are typically thought of as something that is assigned to a user account. However, in Active Directory environments each computer account also has an internal password. If the copy of the computer account password that is stored within the member server gets out of sync with the password copy that is stored on the domain controller then the trust relationship will be broken as a result.

So how can you fix this error? Unfortunately, the simplest fix isn't always the best option. The easy fix is to blow away the computer account within the Active Directory Users and Computers console and then rejoin the computer to the domain. Doing so reestablishes the broken-trust relationship. This approach works really well for workstations.

OR

 it possible to change the GPO is responsible for computer passwords to 0 Or change to any number as large as 999 from here.

GPO (default domain policy) --> Computer Configuration --> Windows Settings --> Security Settings --> Local Policies --> Security Options-->
Domain Member: Disable machine account password change = Disabled
