I have a sbs2003 box that after a power failure came back up the a few days later dns & exchange failed.

my  problem appear to be similar to

http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/smallbusinessserver/thread/9f643f01-a9da-47c8-8549-08faeba85930 

where the solution is to run:

netdom resetpwd /s:"servername" /ud:"domain"\administrator /pd:"the administrators password"

but when i do the command fails to complete successfully due to "Multiple connections to the server"

I ran net use /delete * to close a share but no joy, any ideas?

You are trying to reset the secure channel of DC before you proceed with the command can you post the dcdiag /q and ipconfig /all and netdom query dc output.

However if you still want to rest the secure channel of DC to itself.
first stop kdc service.
use the netdom command  to disconnect the shares
net use /delete *
download resorce kit tools and use kerbtray purge the tickets

thank you,

I got the client to log on remotely and remoted into their session.

I kept getting a incorrect logon message when trying to run the netdom command but when I

net stop kdc
klist purge
netdom resetpwd /s:"servername" /ud:"domain"\administrator /pd:"password"
net start kdc

the dns now shows zones.

I have just reset the server and all seems well.

Any advice on what I should check for?

Although I didn't use Kerbtray it looks as though it would have worked, so accepting as an acceptable answer even though I used a slightly different method, Thanks!
