    I should have read the How Tos first but didnt just jumped
    in and started. I went in to the client computer
    properties and joined the domain there rather than adding
    the computer and user on the SBS then running the connect
    computer wizard from the intranet site. Everything works
    fine the way I did things but a new profile is created and
    then I have to manually migrate over the other profile,
    which is fine but a waste of time and it appears not to be
    the correct way to do it. Half way through my PCs I
    realized there was a better way by accident, not by
    reading. ;P

    What I would like to do is use the preferred method but
    when I try this on the computers that I did in the fashion
    mentioned above I get this error.

    "The Network Configuration Wizard cannot finish because
    you have an open connection(such as a Windows Explorer
    window or network connection) with the SBS computer.
    Please close all connections and windows, and run the
    Network Configuration Wizard again."

    Any ideas / help would be appreciated. I can not figure
    out where the connection to the server is to remove it.

    Client machines are Win2000

  2. If you have any mapped drives or resources like that, that may be causing
    the connection you are seeing. Go to the command line and type "net use" to
    see active connections (from a share level). From the task manager, you can
    make sure that no iexplorer instances are open and try closing down other
    applications which may open a connection to the server like outlook, etc.
