Unable to browse Admin shares

In our environment, I have two Win2k3 servers in the same Site\Domain. We shall call them Server A, and Server B.
Server B is able to connect to Server A via \\servera\ and see all of the shares. However, if Server A tries to connect to Server B via \\serverb\ , it is prompted with a logon box. The domain admin credentials are not accepted, even after resetting the password on Server B.
The default shares do show up on Server B with a \\net share.
I am able to create different users in ADUC on each server, and they replicate across. Looking for any ideas on how to reset the permissions on Server B or any other idea as to why this task is failing.
Both are Win2k3 SP1 and GC's.

Thanks

Any firewall on the machine? If there is no firewall, unjoin from the domain, delete the computer account in ADUC, prestage again and join back to the domain

Before Unjoining from the domain make sure that you have local administrator password and be able to log into it.

Windows firewall is off.

Are there any other solutions that don't include demoting the box?

I didnt realize that they are DCs. Can you get to netlogon & sysvol folders from serverA \\serverb\netlogon \\serverb\sysvol... also are you using same admin account?

No, it prompts for logon.
Yes, I'm using the same account. Even if I reset the password on Server B in the case that it isn't replicating, it still doesn't work.

bigjdve,
Other than demoting and promoting to a DC i cannot think of anything else.

I was hoping for a way around the demotion/promotion route.
Thanks for your other suggestions.

Edit:
Are there any other suggestions? Bringing it down/back up isn't a viable solution at this point.

We finally found the issue. The PDC was causing the problem. It was having problems even replicating with itself.

We had to take PDC off network, force demote, and seize roles.

The solution given by star_trek wasn't quite the perfect fit but, it was along the lines so I am awarding points.
