In an attempt to fix a problem I have created another.
I have deleted a computer name from the list of client computers in the SBS Client Computers snapin.  I re-added the client computer name using the same snapin. Now I am unable to login to the domain from that computer with any user account.

I believe this is the associated logon error below. I have tried logging onto the local machine as the local admin and reconnecting to the domain with a different machine name (it does not seem possible if i don't change the computer name), however, it will not allow me to rejoin the machine to the domain.

If possible, I would like to resolve this so that the user can login with the same credentials and have the same local desktop environment and personal settings.

The session setup from computer 'OMEGA' failed because the security database does not contain a trust account 'OMEGA$' referenced by the specified computer.  
If this is the first occurrence of this event for the specified computer and account, this may be a transient issue that doesn't require any action at this time. Otherwise, the following steps may be taken to resolve this problem:  
If 'OMEGA$' is a legitimate machine account for the computer 'OMEGA', then 'OMEGA' should be rejoined to the domain.
