The Login is from an untrusted domain and cannot be used with Windows authentication

During daily routine checkup, we found following warning and error in event viewer.

At first it might appear from the error that BizTalk Server machine and SQL server machine are in different domain or the user account used for configuring the BizTalk service is from a different domain than from SQl server's domain  -- None is the case 




The Login is from an untrusted domain and cannot be used with Windows authentication  warning


The Login is from an untrusted domain and cannot be used with Windows authentication error



Why it happened


It is known issue and this errors are result of restart of Domain controller(A domain controller is the centerpiece of the Windows Active Directory service. It authenticates users, stores user account information and enforces security policy for a Windows domain) or unavailability of same over the network,thus the BizTalk applications cannot authenticate users until the Domain Controller(s) is not up.And it is because SQL is not able to find the authenticated domain user (as domain controller is not available at moment) and thus throws error. 


What to do


There were no more errors as soon as Domain controller was up but there can be other reasons too, refer following link: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/dataaccesstechnologies/2012/12/19/error-message-login-failed-the-login-is-from-an-untrusted-domain-and-cannot-be-used-with-windows-authentication/
