trust relationship on workstations ?

By mike_m ·
I have NT4.0 SP6 server, a number of clients, some of these clients belong to domain, some just access network as workstations. Occasionally but very frequently I see on the event log of the server the message "Computer xxx has lost the trust relationship. Reestablish the trust relationship etc...." Then I see a sequence of accesses 3 times every 15 minutes or so. This happens from NT4 remote computers and 2000 workstation remotes also. Only one domain is involved and established. How can thishappen and what is the cure ? Is there any technical limitation in accessing a network where a domain is established from a workstation (provided of course that all shared resources grant the correct privilege to the correct user/pwd) ?
Thank you, Mike (Italy).

trust relationship on workstations ?

There is such a thing as a "trust relationship" between a workstation and the domain controller. Basically, for a workstation that is a member of a domain, Microsoft technical info says that these error messages mean that there's something wrong with the machine's domain account. The recommended fix is to remove the machine from the domain, delete the machine account from the PDC and then rejoin the domain - in other words, creating a brand new machine account (thus a brand new machine SID and trust relationship) on the domain. You might want to take a look at this TechNet article - Q162797 (if you don't have TechNet CDs, go to www.microsoft.com/technet and search for the article number). Hope this helps!
