SBS Server not funcation and Netdom Functionality - Expired server domain passwords

I have an SBS2011 server that it did a scheduled reboot this morning and when it did so, DNS will not start and Exchange services would start.

I have done some research and it seems that the DC/DNS server has lost its Secure channel with itself or PDC.

I have disabled IPV6 and also stopped the KDC service and ran the "netdom resetpwd /server:192.168.1.2 /userd:<Domain\domain_admin> /passwordd:*"

I get this error:
The command failed to complete successfully.

I cannot get the command to complete!  I need help.

Here are dcdiag results and ipconfig /all

nltest/sc_query:SBSDomainC.local
I_NetLogonControl failed: Status = 1355 0x54b ERROR_NO_SUCH_DOMAIN

Since this an SBS Server I don't know where to turn beside restoring the OS drive with last nights backup using a BareMetalRestore.  Any suggestions??

Also have this:
C:\>nslookup 192.168.1.2
Server:  UnKnown
Address:  192.168.1.2

*** UnKnown can't find 192.168.1.2: Non-existent domain

C:\>nslookup 01SBSDomainC
Server:  UnKnown
Address:  192.168.1.2

*** UnKnown can't find 192.168.1.2: Non-existent domain
So you can't login to the server locally?

No. I was doing this from my phone and I thought it was the send button

Since this is a DC there are no local accounts. (and since this SBS server there is only this one DC)
I thought I've logged onto SBS 2011 with local accounts before using DSRM mode.

I did have this on a different domain and was able to run the NETDOM Resetpwd function and it worked like a dream.  After thinking about it when I tried to run the function I was not on a domain joined machine, only from a workgroup backup server.
