Trust Relationship Problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to add a person (user account) to a computer. When I get all of the information in and hit apply I get the following message "The user could not be added because the following error occured:   "The trust relationship between this workstation and primary domain failed" "

    I am using Windows 7 Professional 32 bit Laptop and the server is Windows 2003.

    Can anyone explain this to me and tell me how to get arround this problem?

  • Hi,


    First I  want to know how you added this client into domain? On the client or on the server?


    Please rejoin the domain to see if the same issue occurs.


    Also you can try to use another KB:




    Hope that helps
