I recently connected upgraded one of our XP workstations to W7,
It worked fine to start with.

Now I can't reach it via RWW, and on the SBS console it shows as "Offline".

It is in ADUC in the correct place.
Running http://connect appears to complete OK, but doesn't sort out the problem.

related to the workstation
there shouldn't be any errors, do you mind me asking what errors.

I would remove the workstation from the domain, delete the account from Active Directory to go a step further rename the computer and add back to the domain. I expect something in the bindings with the SID may be causing the problem.
