    Did you try Google? (Hint: First link is to MS KB)

    Well, it sounds to me, like you did not finish the installation correct. Does the SBS running AD?

    Also take a look at this;

      As per advice in this thread at Experts-Exchange (scroll all the way down the page, the answer is almost at the bottom), is the copy of SBS a trial edition? For how long has this been happening? How long was it running just fine until this started happening? Also, as pointed out, is the SBS server a domain controller?

          SBS cannot repeat CANNOT be a member server
          it MUST be a domain controller (and a lot of other things) or it will, by design, shut down every hour
