    I clean installed a new MCE 2005 yesterday and joined it to the SBS 2003
    domain during install. The NIC was recognized. After it was set up, I logged
    in with my normal user ID. Worked fine. The new box is listed in AD. WSUS 3
    is OK with it.

    Am I good to go? Is there more I should do? It's already on the domain, but
    can I/should I also run \\server\ConnectComputer? Or is it better to not
    joint the domain during install and instead follow the banana procedure?

  2. Sounds like you're good to go. If the machine is joined to the domain and
    functioning normally, I wouldn't mess with banana. You can configure the
    MCE with the SBS wizard to "Assign applications to client computers" if
    necessary - that should give you the same result as using /connectcomputer.

  3. Hi Jim,

    One more Hotfix shall be installed on Vista computer:

    Moveuser.exe is incompatible with Windows Vista and is replaced by the new
    Win32_UserProfile WMI functionality

    For more info about Vista and Office 2007 in SBS domain, please see:

    You receive an error message when you try to perform any editing tasks, or

    Hope this helps.
