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.


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. 


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


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

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


Reboot and try to log on as domain user.
