SBS 2003 and XP Workstations - re-establishing trust relationship after new install

I have a small network that comprises a SBS Windows Server 2003 server and XP workstations.

Due to a server problem the SBS 2003 software had to be re-installed from scratch. On the re-install the same domain name (e.g. business.local) was used and the same user accounts and passwords were re-entered into AD.

However, the trust relationship between the XP workstations nad the server has been broken due to the new SID on the server. In the System Log then I am seeing NETLOGON errors Event Id 5805 and 5513 saying that computers failed to authenticate and to re-establish the trust relationship. (I have posted these at the bottom of the question.)

The users are able to logon using their user accounts and get access to server resources as normal. However, the system log is getting the regular computer authtication errors.

For one of the XP clients I have changed the network back to a workgroup type and then re-joined the domain. This has fixed the authentication issues for this one workstation but I have needed to redo all the client accounts on the workstation. With the original SBS configuration I have accounts on the client workstation of "john", "fred" etc. but after rejoining the domain I have "john.BUSINESS" & "fred.BUSINESS".

To redo all the accounts on all the workstations would be a lot of work and therefore I am looking for anything that is a smarter option.

NB I can't use any of the SBS wizards for configuring the clients - the reason for this is that I also have a SCO Unix server that requires static IP addressing as part of the security - so my network has been configured manually.

Can any one help ?

ID 5805
The session setup from the computer SALES failed to authenticate. The following error occurred:
Access is denied.

ID 5513
The computer SALES tried to connect to the server \\SERVER using the trust relationship established by the BUSINESS domain. However, the computer lost the correct security identifier (SID) when the domain was reconfigured. Reestablish the trust relationship.
