Shares & RDP not accessable on SBS2011

I have a client with SBS2011 and 6 Win7 clients.  After repeated power failures dugin the night all 6 win7 clients can't access networ shares.  One share is a naked NAS drive but it justs asked for a Username and password.  However, the server can connect to the NAS drive.

There are 8 clients in another site connected via VPN but they are working though they don't use the same NAS and have a RODC on site.  

If I try and RDP from the server to any of the clients in that site it pops up a warning to say there is a Trust Relationship issue and when the cleint tries to authenticate is fails with the error "The trust relationship between the workstation and the primary domain failed"

I have also noticed that on logging into the server a message pops up saying something to the affect of the power namangement on the cleints cannot be configured.

Another issue I noticed was in the Server Manager the GP forest had been removed so I added it back.  Seems to be ok.

The SBS console also now shows that the Spam Protection for email is not set to Critical.

Lastly, the BESX administration service won't validate the login crdentials sayingwrong user or password butthey are correct as I can log into the server with the same.

All was fine yesterday so can anyone suggest the fix and assure me that this is not terminal.....!!

I believe the entire problem you're having can be traced back to the error message 'The Trust Relationship between the workstation and the primary domain failed.' This is not an uncommon problem to have, unfortunately, but it is easy to solve.

Log in locally on any PC that is giving this error message, and remove the machine from your domain. Reboot, and add the PC back to the domain.

This should fix your problems.

[The issue is that the server has an account for that PC, as well as for the users on that PC. When the power outages happened, something occurred that caused that PC account to be corrupted or lost, and so it needs to be recreated. This is the only reliable method of doing that I have found.]

Thanks Corin.  I had thanks hoped for something with a remote procedure but it sounds like a trip in to the office..
