Ok so I work in a domain environment and one of my machines has somehow lost domain trust relationship. I attempted to reset the account in AD and no luck so then I think no big deal Ill log in as a local admin and then rejoin it right? Wrong. I log in as the local admin account that is standard on our network when we image a machine and somehow it is no longer part of the group "administrators." So I have a few backup accounts to try.. One being a admin account for our help desk and one service account for auditing and other use. Both of these accounts are also either not part of the local administrators group anymore or they have been disabled. I tried unplugging the network cable and logging in as well as power-shell scripts and other things from safe-mode but so far cannot get admin level access. I can login to the desktop but im stuck. How do you think these accounts got removed from the administrators group and how the machine randomly lost domain trust? Were we hacked?
