I have a Windows 10 VM on my laptop that I use for accessing the domain when I need to do administrative things. A recent logon attempt resulted in the error message “The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed.” being returned.
The quick fix was to log into the VM using a local user account (.\myusername) and then running the following powershell command in an elevated PS window:
Reset-ComputerMachinePassword -Credential domain\username -Server DC
My admin box updated to Win 10 ver 1803 and of course the Remote Server Administration Tools need to be re-installed. The tools I need to use the most get pinned to my taskbar, but I also move tools to the Start Menu Tiles. You can hold the shift key and right-click the icons on the task bar to access the “Run as different user” option, but this does not work in the Start Menu Tiles.
Here is a fix to add the option to the Start Menu Tiles.
1) Open the Local Group Policy Editor.
2) User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Start Menu and Taskbar
3) Open Show "Run as different user" command on start
4) Change setting to "Enabled"
That should fix it.
Now, back to my previously scheduled GCFE prep…
