Re: Add 2nd SBS server to same network with different IP scheme
Please excuse me but jeff11214 – what planet are you on??
I’ve read this thread and had to read it again to make sure I read it right the first time!
jeff11214 – do yourself a favor – do a migration – it’s not as painful as you think. Just make sure you read the migration document before you start – in fact – read it a couple of times to make sure you understand it. There are sections you can probably ignore if they don’t apply to you.
Re: Unable to contact all domain controllers
I bet the date and time on the new hardware are out of sync with the current DC.
Hit shift F10 to get a command prompt and type date and then time to check / change the date and time.
Re: Apply Computer Setting… I think i try everything
Is this an SBS2011 server? 4GB RAM? I’d throw some more RAM at it for starters – at least up to 12GB.
What other event log errors are there?
Edit – Sorry – SBS2008 – same applies…Oct 11, 2012 at 12:45 pm in reply to: lost SBS 2008 NIC and "alt" DC/DNS didn’t help fulfill requests, very confused! #308821

Yes – it’s an option in the scope. Make sure you have the DNS settings in there as well.
Re: SBS2003 > 2011 Migration Multiple NICs
Thanks for the reply. I do plan to rip out the network before starting the migration – I have a hardware firewall to install so I’ll swap it to a single NIC config and remove the current WAN NIC.
Yeah I could disable it, but I’ve read that can cause issues as well.
Why is is advised to run the CEICW and not just change the IP / DHCP etc?
Re: SBS2011 No Internet
Thanks for the hints. Yes it was all set correctly…
The issue was that the firewall is licenced by x outbound connections. They get cached in the table and a reboot clears the outbound connections table and now I’m able to access the internet! Yay!

Which DVD are you talking about? The SmartSmart DVD? I thought that was for the initial config only and you then use ProLiant Support Packs once installed?
Re: SBS2003 > SBS2011 Migration – Couple of Questions
Sorry for the late reply. I changed my email address which forced me through the re-activation process – which didn’t work so had to wait for the admin to sort it the manual way!
The migration went ok – a couple of gotchas but nothing major.
I left the router on the .100 address and it worked fine no issues, but I did wimp out of building the server with smartstart as the process was asking for stuff that was already in the answer file.
I’d really kike to know the ins and outs of that exact process for next time as its a better way to build the server.
Re: Unable to add to the server junk email list
Yes – what you said is the correct messages – I used the truncated version!
It pops up in a dialogue box when the user logs in.
His Junk Mail folder / lists had about 2 things in…hence I think it has something to do with the server side junk mail lists…
