Windows 7 Pro x64
Great success!

Got it! It turns out I could not run the command while using VPN from another site. After bringing the PC back and physically connecting to the network, the password was reset successfully and after rebooting, I was able to login just fine!

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]

C:\Windows\system32>netdom.exe resetpwd /s:server /ud:domain\user /pd:*
Type the password associated with the domain user:

The machine account password for the local machine could not be reset.

The network path was not found.

The command failed to complete successfully.

Now I know that there's a great possibility that the reason this didn't work is because I do not have the PC on the local network like it usually is. I took it home with me and attempted this while establishing a VPN connection to the domain controller. I thought it might work since I can login fine while off the network, but I get the same Trust error message when trying to login while connected to the VPN.

I'm heading off to return this PC to the office, where I hope it will be able to successfully reestablish the trust.
