The trust relationship between the workstation and the Primary domain has failed

Anyone receiving this error? "The trust relationship between the
workstation and the Primary domain has failed". We just just joined all
our workstations and users to the windows 2003 domain. We did this
through our imaging. Some users are now calling in saying they can't
login. It seems to happen if they don't login their computers for a
couple days. Something is kicking them out of the domain. I'm not sure if
this could be a client issue or not. This is a school district and most
of the computers sit all summer. I'm worried that the first day back is
going to be a login nightmare! We are using netware 6.5 and windows 2003
servers, the latest client. The workstations are all windows xp pro. Let
me know if you need anymore info. Thanks for your help!!

We had this one time, I believe there was some thing wrong in the Domain
Group Policy. It is definitely an AD problem. Sorry I cannot recall how
we fixed it, but it was only on one workstation.
Check out this link for some testing you can do?

This is definitely not a Novell Client issue.

My guess is that you may have duplicate machine names or perhaps a
timing issue between when the PC joins the domain during the imaging
process.

I would deploy 1 new workstation via imaging.
Test to make sure it works with the domain.
Deploy a 2nd PC from the same image via imaging to the domain.
Test Both PCs.

If deploying the 2nd fails or breaks the 1st one, there may be an issue
in the imaging process.

If both work for a while, something outside if breaking the trust.

PERHAPS a very bad snapshot with junk left in it MIGHT destroy a PCs
domain trust. I have never seen this happen, but it would not be beyond
the realm of possibility if a PC name change, domain joining, etc.. had
been placed into a snapshot and pushed out. I have not seen that, but I
have seen things almost as bad over the years.
