    I’m having an issue with a new member server to an existing domain. the new
    server is 2008 R2 running terminal services. I was not able to add the server
    to the existing sbs 2003 domain using the add a server wizard so I added the
    server to the domain manually. Everything seemed fine for a day or two but
    now we receive an error either logging on locally or remotely that says The
    security database on the server does not have a computer account for this
    workstation trust relationship. If we reboot the server we can once again log
    on to the domain. we had the same issue some time ago with Vista clients
    after sp1 came out. For those we removed the clients renamed them and ran the
    connect to computer wizard once again and then had no more issues. I found a
    thread about a GPO regarding primary domain suffix. I checked my GPO and
    found it to be set properly. As of today we have discovered that we get the
    same intermittent error on a windows 7 client as well. Any help would be
    greatly appreciated.

  4. Hello,

    Thanks for your post and Lanwench's input.

    It seems there is anything wrong with the authentication or security relationship after the initial joining of SBS domain. Please go on with your troubleshooting that disjoin and
    rejoin the Windows server 2008 computer into SBS 2003 domain. Please run the SBS 2003 BPA before and after the joining of domain.

    Also run DCdiag /v and NetDiag /v may help we detect AD service problems.

    Hope it helps.
