NEED HELP! Sharepoint (moss2007) Farm Issue

I am in need of some assistance regarding an issue with my moss 2007 Farm. Farm consists of 2 Front Ends, and 1 Database

i was using sharepoint manager 2007 to delete a problematic column "field" from one of my webs and after deletion, it was like poof. Cannot access anything on my farm.

when i try any site collection including including central admin. at first i was getting "unexpected error has occurred" but after restarting iis it now prompts me for a username password, but then times out.

Here are a list of Errors documented on one of the Front End Servers in order (top down) as they appeared:

Along with this, i have checked, but do not see any errors on my sql database.  all databases seem to be  intact, with the exceptions of the config db. It appears to have changed names, but can't confirm.  SharePoint_AdminContent_5df1dead-c246-4e94-a2d9-c421499cf0d5

to me it looks like the web front ends are not properly communicating or connected to the db server.  i cannot authenticate, or access.

i have tried, iis restart, psconfig, sharepoint prod & tech, but it will no run, nor will sharepoint manager 2007

luckly this is still in development, but we have about 6 months of time into this farm, any help or guidance is much appreciated.

"i was using sharepoint manager 2007 to delete a problematic column "field" from one of my webs and after deletion, it was like poof. Cannot access anything on my farm."

what do you mean by "sharepoint manager 2007".  did you delete the column from within your sharepoint site?   if so, that shouldn't cause your farm to crash.  if however, you deleted that column using something else other than the sharepoint site itself, well... no wonder it crashed.

in any event, if indeed the deletion of that column caused your farm to crash, your best solution is going to be to restore from backup.

from that site:
This program enables you to update the data in SharePoint object model directly.
Therefore be very careful when changing the data."

i stick with my previous statement.  your best course of action is to restore from backup.
