I have a Windows Home Server that chunks along just fine most of the time. I've never bothered to put it on a UPS and so it's vulnerable to power outages that happen a few times a year. This most recent time, it came back and seemed to be fine, but whenever I try to access a shared folder I get "Passwords do not match". They matched before the power went out, and I couldn't update the WHS password since I apparently didn't know the old one. How do I fix this?

(I asked this on ServerFault and they recommended it be asked here instead)

It turned out that the power outage had caused the system clock to reset itself back to 2010. Once I reset it to the correct time the errors went away.
