I have installed some endpoint encryption solution on a laptop and from that point I could not login into the workstation with another user. Windows always tells me that the trust relationship between workstation and domain failed. I installed and initilaized it all by the user, let's name him A. I wanted to make user B to be able to login at the PBA. Therefor I had to login to the PBA with user A and login with user B on Windows.

In this case the encryption solution would see that and automatically update the PBA in order to make it possible that user B is able to login to the PBA. But all I get when trying to login with user B on Windows is the relation ship problem.

Interesting: Trying user A at the PBA and on windows is possible. Is windows lying? Why does the trust relationship problems occur when another person is able to use the computers account within the domain?
