Fix: The trust relationship between workstation and primary domain failed


Hi all!

What we have…

During logon process you receive the error: the trust relationship between workstation and primary domain failed.

Reason:

Computer account  and secure channel password are stored in DC. By default this secure channel password will change every 30 days (absolutely automatic process). When computer is starting , Netlogon Service discovers a DC and receives password. If passwords are not identical, error appears. 

Solution:

Unplug network cables/ remove connection from virtual adapters, log on as local administrator

trust_fix_1

Plug network cable/define vswitch for vNIC after successful login and run :

NETDOM RESETPWD /Server:yourDC /UserD:domain\user /PasswordD:password

trust_fix_2

Reboot and try to log on as domain user.
