Small network with two servers. SBS 2011 & Server 2008.

Just today, nobody can log in remotely or get mail on any device.

The domain admin cannot login either. Gets invalid username or password message.

I can log on remotely to the Server 2008 box as the local admin, but of course that doesn't give me domain privileges.

I want to remotely reboot the SBS box. I've tried using shutdown.exe, but of course authentication fails.

Any suggestion as to how I might achieve this? I'll have physical access tomorrow but would love to solve this today.
