Dear experts, I currently have 50 XP clients on a windows server 2003 domain. I want to add a few Windows 7 clients on our Windows Server 2003. Domain is installed successfully on clients but we want to logon (domain user) on clients, they generate a error i.e " The Security database on the server does not have a computer account for this workstation trust relationship" Please guide me about this error as soon as possible.

    The fix mentioned in Mariodlg's link seems kind of long. I get what he is doing though. What I would do instead is unjoin the domain then login as the local admin- go into regedit- find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindows NTCurrent VersionProfileList- Under ProfileList delete all users who reference the old domain- go into C:Users and delete their folders. What I would assume is happening is that since win7 uses C:/Users instead of C:/Documents and Settings there is a problem with the NTData file. Remember this is deleting their user information so make sure all data is backed up. Afterwards, reboot and rejoin the domain- Bam! Should be good!
