Exchange 2010 not showing forest

I went to look at the queue for Exchange 2010 running on a SBS 2011 Server, and opening the exchange management console, I get just the microsoft on premises header, nothing else shows up. Opening the management shell, I get.

[serverh.ha.local] Connecting to remote server failed with the following error message : Logon failure: unknown user na
me or bad password. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.
    + CategoryInfo          : OpenError: (System.Manageme....RemoteRunspace:RemoteRunspace) [], PSRemotingTransportExc
   eption
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PSSessionOpenFailed

seems it cant either find the forest, or something is not allowing the mmc to log in? No passwords have been changed that I am aware of.

Thanks

MAke sure that your users have local admin rights on the server (eg. Domain Admins) and that your user is a member of the Exchange Organisation Administrators group to allow you to see the queues.

I am logged into the server as administrator,, I have not logged into it in some time, it was working at one point say 3 months ago.. Their email is flowing, and never misses a beat, just can get in there to see anything ??

Can you open the Exchange Management Shell ok. Does that bring up any errors?
Is IIS running ok and in IIS management console, so all the appropriate virtual directories exist e.g. owa, ecp, powershell, exadmin etc.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

When I checked the shell, it errors that it cannot sign in,, I CAN however sign in as admin in the console and in the shell. Administrator is not a member of all what it needs to be for some reason, I will look at it this week,,

Powershell issues can be caused by several things including IIS not working or configured correct, Powershell Execution policy not correctly set, wrong version of powershell installed (need 2.0 for Exchange 2010),  DNS, SSL certificates and so on.

You have been helpful ! And the only respondent to the question.. Although I have matched up the Administrator and the Admin groups up, I can only see the forest in the Admin login, which suffices for now. I appreciate your comments and the time you took to answer them
