The account name is invalid or does not exist

i encounter issue with pdq inventory getting  "The account name is invalid or does not exist"

only half of the pc impacted (not all , same vlan)

checked using Test-ComputerSecureChannel, show false and attempt to fix it using -repair, but still same issue (showing false)

tried unjoin, rejoin domain, not working

tried to restart the netlogon service of the impacted pc, but same issue

anyone have other idea to further check here

thanks in advance
