How can reset/delet domain passwaord cache in local machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear concerns,

    I am using a windows 8 operating system, I am member of a domain. Also I am a local administrator of my laptop. I also have made image of my system drive.

    Yesterday my windows got stuck and its giving errors regarding  startup application and drivers etc. Now the best solutions at that time to restore the back up. I did it and its restore successfully. But the
    problem is when I try to login my domain account it say some error " Trust relationship between this workstation and
    domain controller failed". Only way to login is remove the network cable and entre the old password when I created the image of system drive. I even change it after login by pressing CTRl+Alt +Delete and then changed it and it was changed successfully but the problem is same while login again by putting the network cable back. I googled it then I came know that its some of log sync issue between my laptop and my domain server as I changed password
    during this time span i.e. when I created the backup. They also gives quick solution i.e. disconnect from domain and reconnect it to domain but problem is here I don't have the domain password and concern persons are not very welcoming even if they did it what happen next time when restore it again.

    So my question is that how can I reset/delete/clear the information of my domain user id & password or that "log" which
    creating the problem, from my system other then disconnect and connect to domain, there must be some way as I am still able to login to other systems of my colleagues with my domain id and current password,
    but I don't know why there is not log sync issue at there. I copied all my important data to other partitions so nothing to worry about the loss of data.

    Reset/delete of my domain does not mean  I want to do it on the server but on the local machine I think ''clearing the domain cached" is another relative term of my problem. I highly appreciated your cooperation in this regard.

    Best Regards

  • Hi Mubasher!

    The only way to recreate the trust between your client and the domain is to remove the client from the domain and rejoin it.

    This is due to the fact that the "request" is sent from the server and not your client.

    But still, this shouldn't be a problem. I would rejoin the client to the domain and create a new backup since there is a chance that the backup hasn't been completely successful.
