Cannot open SP2010 central admin or site collections. Error is "cannot connect to the configuration database".

Warning in SP log reads:

"The credentials used for the account ***\***** expired on 8/25/2010 4:18:55 PM, and need to be updated. If they are not updated, the system may stop working. The account is used by the following: Farm Account"

and

"To mitigate this issue, please visit the managed account administration page to schedule automatic password updates"

However, the domain account referenced and its password are set to never expire and, of course, I now cannot access the managed account admin page.

I was able to logon to the SP server using the farm account credentials so I know neither the account or its password are expired.

Additionally, although SP warns that the credentials used for account ***\***** have expired, I can see over on the database server the account successfully logging on.
