Resolving “Trust Relation between this workstation and the PDC”

Filed under: Microsoft Related — Tags: — Syed Jahanzaib / Pinochio~:) @ 9:18 AM

Yesterday I converted one of our Physical Windows 2008 base SAP QAS server to ESXI 5.x Virtual Guest for some R&D purposes. It took around 30+ hours for the conversion using vconverter 6 [as old converters have no support UEFI BIOS. When I powered on the newly converted vm guest machine I received the following error upon login



[I also received same error in year 2014 when our lotus domino server was migrated to new IBM Xseries 3650 M4 series and after every thing got settled i received this error upon final login, what a terrible time that was]

As a quick remedy I tried to RESET the computer account of this PC via AD management but no use.
Finally I used old NETDOM method and it worked instantly.

This is how I solved this problem.

Login with local computer admin account

Open COMMAND prompt

and Issue following command

netdom resetpwd /s:server /ud:domain\User /pd:*


Example if you have following setup

AD Server Name : SERVER1
Domain Name : mydomain.local
User Name : jahanzaib

then use following

netdom resetpwd /s:server1 /ud:mydomain.local\jahanzaib /pd:*

It will ask you to enter new password, simply enter password and enter. [prompt will not let u see the typing so careful when typing password]

After then simply log off and login with your domain id and it will work Insha Allah.
