Trouble joining Domain

By BobbyJGR ·
I have a Windows XP workstation and I am trying to add a user from a Windows 2000 Server. I am getting to the point where it asks standard user restricted user or other I choose Other and mahe them administrator, when i click next I get the following error. "The User could not be added because the following error occurred The trust relationship between this workstation and the Primary domain failed." The workstation was able to join the domain and the user is created on the server. Please help,how do I resolve this?
Thank you in advance,
Bobby

If the workstation is joined to the domain, and the user in question has an active account in the domain, you do not need to crete an account on the workstation. The user merely logs-on using their domain user ID and password.

In a Windows environment the user and the computer have a separate account. The computer account is identified by COMPUTER$. The computer and the PDC (or DC in an AD) share a password, much like a user account and the password is changed regularly. If one system fails to see the password update you will get the error you are receiving.

To fix this, remove the computer from the domain and put it into a workgroup. Rename it and add it back. This will fix the problem. Sometimes you can just remove it from the domain and readd it to fix the problem.
