I am having this issue trying to log into my computer here at work if I have the network cabel plugged in and try to log in I get this messege "The trust relationship between the workstation and the primary domain failed" if I unplug the cabel and put in password I can log in then plug the cabel in and it works fine but I cant log in when cabel is plugged up. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Chad

you can log into your companies domain with no network cable being plugged in?

contact your IT admin and tell him/her the problem, im sure they can get you back up in no time.

most likely it will be a simple change in the active directory, though i have never seen the message "The trust relationship between the workstation and the primary domain failed".

someone here at BC will know way more about this than me, im sure you will get your problem resolved.

Interesting problem....

Your admin will more than likely end up fixing it by removing your computer from the domain while also removing it from Active Directory and resetting the trust.

As to why it would let you log in without the cable plugged in, I have a feeling that your logging into a cached domain account which will act normally if you are on Windows 2000/XP once you connect the network cable.

Hope it helps!

In the middle of a domain migration at work here and have seen a similar "trust relationship" error on several machines that we migrate manually. The working fix (although not 100%) is to drop the computer from the domain to a workgroup, remove and add the computer to AD, then add the computer back to the domain.
