We have SBS 2003, on Friday it crashed during a reboot and by Monday after noon I was formatting the drives for a fresh install. Oy!  So we have our server with two NIC cards, Verizon DSL, Netgear L2 Gigabit Switch and a Netgear GIgabit VPN Firewall 25.  We also have a second server running Server 2003 standard.

After 24hrs of trying to configure the two NICs, I gave up.  We had one NIC to Verizon and the second NIC to the switch.  I turned off DHCP on the SBS 2003 and set up the router to connect to Verizon and do DHCP.  So now the clients have internet and some clients can view files on the server.  But we still cannot access the second sever, which has our accounting software on it.  Previously to override SQL Server security and such (long story, but the accounting software is crap) I made all users a domain admin so they could use the software.  Still can't access!  I also can't view the connectcomputer or remote desktop.  I cannot log into the servers remotely either.  I know this is all  permissions that were whipped out from the format.  Any idea where I should start looking?
