Exchange server 2010 "Security database on the server does not have computer account for this workstation"

Client called saying their Outlook was asking for a password to login to Exchange server.
I remoted in and looked and then logged into Exchange server and when I attempt  to login to it I get this message
"Security database on the server does not have computer account for this workstation trust relationship"
Since this is an Exchange server I'm treading carefully. I can login on the local server, just not using domain credentials. Normally I would just unjoin and rejoin, but since this is Exchange I felt I shouldn't do that.
Really out of my depth here, seeking assistance

I think your exchange loss connection with Domain controller. Could restart the exchange server? log on using local administrator then reboot the server?

suriyaehnop - Since the Exchange is a hyper-V I just remove the LAN connection and logged in with the cache credentials, but have rebooted it 2 times with still the same message. The DC shows the server in AD, but acts like it has been reset or something.

Steven Wells - Time is correct and the DNS setting are still the same, point to the only DC in the organization.

Steven Wells - I might be a little foggy this AM, but if I unjoin and rejoin won't there be an issue with the server name already existing on the DC??

Steven WellsSystems AdministratorCommented:
no,  the dc will allow you to rejoin if you leave computer object,  and you have full domain admins rights.
