I have a Windows 2012 Essentials server, it was running with no problem for more than a year,
Today I cannot access via RDC or physical with the administrator account,

I get this error: "The security database on the server does not have a computer account for this workstation trust relationship"

What can I do?

I've see these issues if the server cannot see the domain. It is most likely a DNS issue. Could you look at your DNS Manager and make sure your server is there?

Because it´s Essentials, the Server itself is the domain controller, I cannot log on to see what Dns is configured, but I am sure it has at itself as the DNS.

Can you login with a local admin account (if one was setup) instead of the domain admin account?.

eg.
"computername\admin" instead of "domain\administator"

Do you have the DS recovery password? You can boot into DS recovery mode.

I always recommend adding 127.0.0.1 as a DNS server for when the adapter fails

Sorry for the confusion....
Here´s the story update....
This company has two Essentials Servers on the same network (different companies), I was trying to log in into the server with  othercompanydomain\administrator

That´s why the error appeared.... changing to the correct domain didn´t work because someone changed the administrator password to something else.
