Windows clients lost trust relationship with domain

Razzi29 286 Reputation points

We recently use the Offline Domain Join ODJ.exe utility to remotely re-deploy a DirectAccess Client GPO settings to a fleet of Windows users that lost the DirectAccess client due to a DA server rebuild. The majority seem to be fine, but we recently noticed on 5-7 clients that the domain trust relationship is broken for some reason and we manually need to re-add the PC to the domain. This is a pain since most of those users are working from home due to the pandemic. I spent countless hours trying to figure out what may be run, or if there any experts ton DirectAccess technologies that can assist. I am not 100% convinced is a DA issue and it may be coincidental at this point. As for the device losing the trust, I am trying also to figure out why is happening. We are at a lost stage :-( Reference:
