Unable to query for Computers in the network - SBS 2008

TonyWigan asked
Last Modified: 2012-09-21
Was working, now is not.  I am unable to see domain computers or servers in SBS Console.
Any selection within Netowrk or within the User properties returns "Unable to query" or "Unable to query Computers in the Network"  as a result I am unable to assign computers to users in RWW.  This is having a significant business impact as remote users cannot "Connect to Computer" in RWW.  AD structure and the OU names and structure are as per default SBS2008 structure ie: OU: My Business OU: SBS Computers etc.  I can see all computers in Active Directory Users and Computers and all computers show in the correct OU when I run DSquery. I have not found any information searching this issue.  Please Help!
