    Hi, I recently setup 2 servers in one domain. The Primary
    server is running Enterprise server 2003, the secondary
    server is running Small Business server 2003. I have
    configured active directory on both, replication takes
    place, all seems to work fine, however...
    I have been getting errors on the SBE server saying there
    are 2 computers running SBE Server 2003, and it is against
    the EULA, (something like that). This is not the case
    however, both domain controllers are running different
    LEGAL versions of server 2003, one enterprise, the other
    SBE. TODAY, 12/26/03 my SBE Server SHUT OFF!!!!!! Becasue
    of this silly error!!!!!! This is bad, because it is
    currently running my company's web site and it wont stay
    on for longer than an hour!!! It seems like the SBE server
    THINKS there is another computer running the SAME version
    of windows as it in the domain, why is this? My Enterprise
    server has NO errors in the event viewer regarding this
    issue! PLEASE HELP!!!!

  2. Hi,

    SBS needs to be the head domain controller. So the installation order would
    be SBS, then Enterprise, not the other way around

  3. In addition, you may want to take this over to the SBS 2003 newsgroup,
    microsoft.public.windows.server.sbs, they will probably be able to help
    you..
