  • sbs 2008 - new installation

    Hello,

    Our idea here is to migrate NetWare network to windows.
    We want to setup SBS 2008 on new server that we purchased.

    I have installed SBS 2008 Standard on HP 350 ML G5.
    We want to setup this server as Domain Controller.
    I'm following the steps from Demo that is available on microsoft website.
    Installation was successful without any errors. Server was not connected to the network
    during the installation.
    I connected server to network after installation.
    Currently this Server is connected to the small switch and switch to network.
    My problem is when I'm trying to run option "Connect to the Internet" from the SBS Console.
    I'm getting screen that is attached on the picture.
    I can't do "postpone" or "continue".
    If I click on "Manage router" I'm getting login screen to Netware WebAccess from server.
    I can't setup any other options, because it gives me errors that interface was not found or domain not found, no connection found, etc.
    Is there a way that I can bypass this Step?
    Is this really the first step in setting up sbs 2008?
    Is there better manual than this demo from microsoft?

    Thanks

    I would strongly recommend that you follow the guidelines provided by Microsoft. Is there any reason why you don't want to turn off DHCP on your router?

      Thanks for all your help.
      Here it is what I've tried:

      connect sbs 2008 to a switch.
      and then run "Connect to Internet" wizard.
      According to this video:
      http://www.netometer.com/video/tutor...tep1/index.php

      after typing the ip's I should get success screen but I don't get the "successful" screen.
      only the red one. (screen2.jpg).
      I'm not sure what is wrong.
      Any suggestions?

        I'm not familiar with SBS 2008 but have you followed its suggestion and run the Fix My Network wizard?

        Can you confirm that DNS is installed on your server (if it's SBS then it should be), and make sure that you can access the DNS console from Administrative Tools.

          no problem,

          I've found out the solution myself.
          You can use just switch and server connection to bypass this.
          You don't need the actual internet connection here.

          here are the first screens of my steps.
          Please post them on other places for it's who wants to test
          it without internet connection

                no problem,

                forward those screens to other forums,
                I'm pretty sure that someone will need them
