netdom for windows 7 embedded

joel.wx 1 Reputation point

A full disk backup image of win7 embedded was created by ghost after the machine joined AD 5 month ago
last week,the hard drive is broken,we restore the machine after replace the HD.
booting up is ok,but we can not login with the ad account.
error msg: lost trust relationship with domain controller.
after same research ,we believe its a machine password issue.
netdom is the right tool for reseting the machine password,but we can not find such command for win7 embedded.
where can i get this?

    Windows Embedded has a write lock/filter that might prevent this changes, check about it and how to diable here:

    In the case of this version, I would strongly recommend to commit a manual rejoin to the domain

    Best regards!

    thanks guys for replying
    a manual rejoin is rejected by manager.
    so, that leave me no choice.
    I'm a little confused.
    will win7 em rebuild the trust relationship automaticly if EWF/FBWF is disable?
    or I still need something like netdom to repair the true relationship?
    thanks again.

    If you are admin of the Windows 7, you could try to reset the computer password using the nltest command:

    Open a Command prompt using Admin rights

    nltest /sc_reset:Domain\DC_Name

    ex: for a domain called and a DC called DC01, the command will be:

    nltest /sc_reset:lab\DC01
