Broken trust between computers and domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We are getting "Broken trust between computers and domain" from all our servers that has RDS (Remote Desktop Services) installed - but the servers are still perfectly joined to the domain.

    When I run this powershell command (Test-ComputerSecureChannel) it retuns True, so there is no problem on the RDS servers.

    Have any of you an idea of why we are getting this alert?

  • The machine account password is expired, probably because the local administrator account is also expired, so they are unable to change every 30 days as normal.

    To fix while logged in as local administrator.

    Run command prompt in elevated mode, and type the following below without the "".

    "netdom.exe resetpwd /s:<server> /ud:<user> /pd:*"

    <server> = a domain controller in the joined domain

    <user> = DOMAIN\User format with rights to change the computer password

    Press Enter, and you will be asked for password for the domain user account.

    After that, you should get a "machine account password for the local machine has been successfully reset".

    It has not come back after i did this with 3 of our RDS Servers yet.

    Forgot to mention:; you need to reboot them after the modification:)

  • Hi

    Thank you for the answer/input - unfortunately the solution did not solve it for us.

    Does anyone else have an idea on how to solve this issue?

  • did you get a machine account successfully reset? did you remove the tick about expire password for local administrator?

    i find it very strange that this did not solve your problem..
