Even though the new domain name is the same the underlying GUID is different so it is still a new domain. Simply join the computers to the new domain.

Hi,

The domain is the same as the previous domain name but right now having an error on the client machine "the security database workstation trust relationship" with the same user name.

If I workstation re-join manually after login system with user name and password after that user machine creates new profile instead of login in the existing profile. for example, previous domain user vinod.khatri and new directory user name is the same . after re-join vinod.Khatri profile will be a new creation instead old one.

is it possible after re-Join computer profile will be the same as it is?

Thank you

That's all expected behavior. Even though the new domain name is the same the underlying GUID is different so it is still a new domain.

is it possible after re-Join computer profile will be the same as it is?

Logon once as the new domain user so the new profile gets created, then logon as another user with local admin rights, navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

find the new domain profile and point the expand string ProfileImagePath to the old profile.
