    I try to reinstall server admin console because I don´t find it in my
    installation. But when I start SBS setup the setup checks the system and
    blocks the setup because our netbios domainname contains incorrect
    characters. Our netbios domainname contains an underliner which is not
    allowed. We have this domainname since year 2000 in our windows2000 domain
    and everythings works well and it is not possible to change it.
    It is possible to install additional packages from the SBS CD´s without
    these check ?

  2. I think you have a problem, as in perhaps the SBS installation was never
    completed in the first place? SBS will not install with an invalid name,
    those had to be corrected when moving from NT to 2000.

    AFAIK, you're in for a re-install.
