Hello Experts

When I try to log on to this particular workstation I get this message:

"The security database on hte server does not have a computer account for this workstation trust relationship" (without quotes).  

I tried logging in as the user as well as my administrator account and get the same message.

Please bear in mind, I cannot get on this machine because of this error.  How do I fix this?

Thanks

1.Unplug the network cables on the Server/PC that is inaccessible..
2.Login on to the Server/PC that is inaccessible with an account that has Administrator privileges.
3.Plug the server network cable back in while logged on.
4.Change the domain name from FQDN (yourpc.local ) to the short name (yourpc).
5.Reboot the server and log back in as the domain user and all should be fine.

The server is accessible.  Just the PCis inaccessible.  Do I need to take htem both out of the network, or just the PC?

2. Enable local admin.
3. Reboot and login as local admin.
4. Rejoin computer to domain

Local admin was disabled once we joined the domain.

How do I enable the local admin in safe mode?

If I re-join the domain, I presume I'll create a new user.  Will copy and paste take care of that change?

All Experts:

I re-booted the Sever remotely and now I cannot access either the user account or the admin account from this machine.

Any ideas how to work around this and at least get user access to the server?

In windows 7 local admin account maybe disabled.
If you can login to computer on account with administrative privilage you can enabled local admin account and reset password.
If you don't have administartive privilage you can log as local admin in safe mode (in safe mode local admin account is enabled) - then you can permament enable local admin account (in user applet in control panel)

I am now able to log on to the user account, but still cannot do anything with an administrator account.

Local admin is disabled.  I'll try it in safe mode in the next few days

Logging in via Safe Mode gave me access to the local admin account.  From there I was able to lace and re-join the domain account.

Once that was done, it all worked OK.  However I still had to rebuild the profile (Desktop, Email, etc)

It was a good learning experience.

While I hope I'll never have to use this again, I'm glad to have it as part of my toolkit.

Thanks again
