This has happened one a rare occasion to me but I figure it is worth documenting for prosperity 🙂 This will only work IF you have a Domain Admin account AND it is locally cached on the system with the issue!

  • Disconnect the network connection, this will allow you to use cached credentials for your domain admin account.
  • Login with your domain admin account
  • Reconnect Network connection
  • Run powershell command “Reset-ComputerMachinePassword -Server DCName”

If this doesn’t work then you’re going to be left cracking a local admin password!

Typically for security reason you would deny cached logins for systems such as servers and workstations, but you would allow them for laptops since users will need to login without being connected to the company domain.
