Establishing a Trust Relationship RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know that this problem has been kicked around on this forum and I am dealing with it now trying to set up my company's server.

    I was able to connect my computer to the server - Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3, but I cannot connect any other computers using Windows XP Home Service Pack 3.

    When the connector is installed it states"

    "This computer is unable to establish a trust relationship with the server. Verify that the computer's date and time are accurate and try again"

    I have tried changing machine keys, uninstalling Virus scans, turning off firewall, and of course checking the date/time/timezones and nothing seems to work.

    I am using the trial version for Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials and as of right now am not too happy with it if I cannot even connect more than computer to it.

    Does anyone know if a fix or workaround was ever completely figured out?

  • I don't know what other posts you're referring to. Windows Home versions are not able to join domains so it is not a fault of the SBS E. Upgrade those Home version workstations to a Professional version which can join a domain.
