Windows XP Trust issue

By fred.baker ·
Even though I'm able to join the workstation to the domain when I attempt to login I'm getting the following error message: " The trust relationship between this workstation and the Primary domain controller failed"

Thanks for any help you can provide>

sounds like password was changed recently? can you force replication to server. can you logon at that workstation w/o error using another account. is there anything in event viewer (give id and source) in the server or workstation. check the time and timezone on both pc's. kerberos needs time to be correct else it thinks you are hacking

Most likely the computer name existed in the domain at some point and was not properly removed.

Login to this computer as local admin and disjoin it from the domain. Then go to active directory Users and Computers and delete the entry in Computers with the same name (if it is still there.) Reboot the workstation and re-join it to the domain.

Make sure the name of the computer is unique to all others.

Log on locally as a local administrator. In the Network tool of Control Panel, select Change and enter a Workgroup name, leaving the domain. Restart the computer and log on locally as a local administrator.

There are two methods to rejoin the domain:
You can join the domain from the client if at the same time you can provide an administrator username and password on the domain.

You can delete the existing computer account in Server Manager, recreate the computer account, synchronize the domain, and then on the client rejoin the domain.
