"The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed" using Synology as Active Directory server
I am using my Synology server as my Active Directory server.
Synology uses Samba as the Active Directory server and it has been working great so far, ..well until today.
Suddenly I could not login and got the error "The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed".
I logged into the Synology server with another PC and figured the issue most likely was related to Domain Policies.
And yes.... if you have policy with "Maximum password age" AND an account with "Password never expires" you have a conflicting situation, when the password expires.
So make sure "Maximum password age" is not ticked off if you want to have an account which never expires
Ideally Synology should have warned about this conflicting situation when saving, but ...
