HELP: Can't reinstall SBS components via MAINTENANCE / REINSTALL

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by Serge Wagener, Jan 20, 2005.

  1. When i try to reinstall SBS components via MAINTENANCE mode and then
    reinstall Intranet, Administration and Networking i get errors like the
    following (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Integration\Windows Small Business
    Server 2003\Logs\SBSMSI-admin.log)

    All 3 subcomponents fail to install. I want to reinstall because i can't
    install EXCHANGE on my existing SBS config (fails while creating
    distribution groups during setup). I guess my SBS config is screwed up, but
    i can't reinstall. The machine is in production. Maybe it is because i
    imported users from old nt4 server via a temp W2K server (installed NT4,
    upgraded to PDC, upgraded to W2K and then migrated users to SBS2003 server
    AD)

    I'm completely stuck, so i hope someone can help me out of this ...

    Hello Serge,
    I'll try to take a shot at helping you although you might want to talk to
    PSS if you're in a critical "Server Down" situation and can't afford to be
    losing a day or more.

    Looks to me like you had some problems migrating users, particularly
    something about your Power Users group and then your Install attempted to
    roll back.

    I recommend starting over. If your original NT4 PDC exists you can always
    start from the beginning again.
    Your migration plan seems good enough...
    NT4 Domain > NT4 BDC > Promote to PDC > Upgrade to Win2K DC > Upgrade to
    Win2K3 DC > Upgrade to SBS2K3

    I also recommend taking a look at Jeff Middleton's Swing Migration, it'll
    probably be very worthwhile as a guide although it's mainly intended to
    migrate from SBS2K to SBS2K3
