Server 2016 WSUS & SQL Trust Relationship Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am installing WSUS on Server 2016 and also SQL 2016 on Server 2016.  I've tried untinalling both SQL and WSUS, unjoining the domain and rejoining, I tried SQL 2014 and have the same issue. I'm running out of ideas.

    When I run WSUS post config either from the GUI or from powershell I get the error "Fatal Error: The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed."  Both servers are connected to the domain and functioning correctly as far as I can tell.  WSUS does talk to SQL long enough to create the DB.

    Postconfig command: wsusutil.exe postinstall SQL_INSTANCE_NAME=wsus-sql\wsus2016 CONTENT_DIR=E:\WSUS_Updates


    End of the Log:

  • Hello,

    According to the error message, I suggest you remove your computer from the domain and rejoin to the domain.

  • Thanks I had tried that multiple times but it did not help, turns out it was a bad computer object, unjoining the domain, deleting the object and rejoining solved the issue.
