PPTP VPN Trust Relationship Error

HI there, I have a client with a SBS2008 server setup which terminates PPTP VPNS. The clients connect via VPN without any issue. They can access the UNC path of the servers once authenticated. I have one server that a user is trying to connec to and they get "The Trust Relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed"
The client machine that VPN's in is not on the domain, they can connect to other servers fine. We can access the UNC path from withinside the company LAN and I have connected to the VPN with admin credentials but still the same error. Anyone have

Interesting error, I have never seen this with a VPN. I wonder if the the VPN is triggering something be tween client and local domain and is not really related to the VPN itself. Just grasping at straws. However if this might be the case try disabling/un-checking "use remote default gateway" on the client under control panel | network connections | right click on the VPN/Virtual adapter and choose properties | Networking | TCP/IP -properties | Advanced | General.
When checked it will disable local connections, such as a locally mapped drive, until the VPN is disconnected.

Another thought: In the VPN client configuration there is user name, password and domain. If the domain is filled in try removing it.
to resolve this issue i removed the server from the domain and re added it
