    Disable Start-up repair. This will fix it. Its auto repairing itself then loosing trust with the domain. Have a search there is a script on here to disable it on bulk.

    If they are laptops, it is probably being caused by them not being properly shut down and then left unplugged too long so they don't shutdown properly. When restarted they go into startup repair, as stated above, which takes them back to a pre domain state. We had this happening and I followed the advice on this thread:

    Windows 7 clients dropping off the domain

    Plus I reminded all staff about the need to make sure laptops were shut down properly before the lids were closed.

    Yep - had this happening too. Real nuisance. Drop the following into a startup script to kill it...

    Code:
    objShell.run "bcdedit /set {default} recoveryenabled No"
    objShell.run "bcdedit /set {default} bootstatuspolicy ignoreallfailures"
    VBS script that is...
