Server 2008R2 Enterprise Trust Problem

Hello,

I have two domains in which we established a two way trust 2 months ago and it has worked fine.  A week ago this trust started to experience problems with users in one domain being prompted for credentials when trying to access drives in the other.  We can pass admin credentials and the drives will map, but once a user reboots the situation repeats.

For this question, lets call the domains BC and BNLR.

BC can access all resources in BNLR - this trust works
BNLR is prompted for credentials when accessing resources in BC

BNLR shows trusts setup both in Netdom and in GUI (Domains and Trusts)
BC show NO trusts setup in Netdom  or in GUI (Domains and Trusts)

When we try to setup trust again in the BC domain, it says "domain trust already exists"

Any ideas why we cannot see this trust?  And, if we cannot see the trust, how can we delete it and re-setup this trust?

Are both the domains are healthy with regards to AD Replication and Global Catalog. Also please check for Netlogon errors on user's workstation. If you see one troubleshoot it first and then try to access shares. Also update NIC drivers on all servers and workstations whichever has issues.

We deleted the trust using command line.  Once we removed the original trust we could then use the GUI to re-setup.  After we did this we could then manage the trust from the GUI.  Not sure why the server is behaving this way, we feel there is corruption on the HDD that has caused these issues.  We are going to bring up a new DC and remove this server from AD functions.
