The fix for trust relationship between workstation and domain failed error

October 12, 2017

I have suddenly being hound by the “trust relationship between workstation and domain failed” error lately.


While there are two option to fix.


Option 1: Remove the client workstation from the domain and rejoin it again. NB: This is not recommended approach by Microsoft.


Option 2 : Using powershell method

Logon as a local administrator on the workstation and use the below powershell command.

$credential = Get-Credential

Reset-ComputerMachinePassword -Server ClosestDomainControllerNameHere -Credential $credential

Then restart the computer and logon with a domain based account or username.
