  • about new domain

    Hi ,

    I have just install the windows server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition on IBM X3300 M4 Series Server . The installation is almost same only we need to boot the server using IBM Server OS 9.3. Now after OS is getting install when i first try to install ADDS Role , its giving error , we need to set the password for administrator.

    I run this command

    net user administrator HelloWorld%55 /passwordreq:yes

    it completed successfully but still it is not allowing me to install the domain , so i just reboot the server and then it just lock the server , its not allowing me to login with Administrator Password..I tried with the password which i use in that command , i tried with blank password which was blank earlier..but its not allowing me to login...

    so what could be the issue...please help..

    If it is a new build server, I would consider a full reinstall but NOT using the IBM installation media -- use the normal Server 2K8 media instead and pull drivers off the IBM media when you need to. I have found this recently with HP and Fujitsu, that when you use their install media, you get a very wierd Windows install at the end, and for both I have had to scrap the setup and install manually as above.

      Same thing goes for Dell--their 'Life Cycle Management' software won't let us install Windows 2012 Datacenter on 4 boxes, because it refuses to accept any license keys, OEM from the sticker or thru our paid licensing from MS site. We gave up and did as Ossian suggested--Windows install disk and downloaded drivers. They work fine.
