[HOWTO] Fix Windows Vista – The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed

Print this post Email this post

For some unknown reason, one of my colleague gets this message everytime he’s trying to login:

“The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed”

Instead of deleting his profile and recreating it as proposed by most people, I just try to rejoin it to the domain. It works! Step by Step instruction is available after the jump.

I’m not very familiar with Vista’s layout, so it may be a little bit longer than what needs to be done.

  1. Click on the Start and right click on Computers
  2. Go to Advance System Settings (on the bottom left)
  3. Go to the Computer Name tab
  4. Click on Network ID
  5. Re-join to Domain (it will ask you if you want to use the profile for the same computer and say yes)
  6. Restart the computer
