I have one work station that the user, about every 6 mo, cannot get into using Remote Desktop connection, the error they receive is

Authentication error has occurred
The Local Security Authority cannot be contacted

There is a second piece of the message
This could be due to an expired password
Please update your password if it has expired

I checked and the password has not expired

What seems to fix it is to rejoin the workstation to the server again, even though it thinks it still is part of the domain.
i.e. https://servername/connect

How can I prevent this from happening?
