  2. Anthony,

    Try the following steps, it should resolve the issue.

    The Administrator may be a member of many other groups, removed any groups
    that were not the default installed groups and the install went through.

    Verify all domain controllers on the network is assigned as a Global
    Catalog - GC.
    Remove and readd Domain Admins, Schema Admins, and Enterprise Admins to the
    built-in Administrator account.

    1. Open AD Sites and Services, verify each DC is a GC.
    2. After the changes, please reboot all dc, or wait for the replication to

    1. Create a new admin account called Admin2. Assign Administrators, Domain
    Domain Users, Enterprise Admins, Group Policy Creator Owners, Mobile Users,
    Schema Admins to the account.
    2. Logon to the SBS server as Admin2.
    3. Use AD Users and Computers snap-in, remove Domain Admins, Schema Admins,
    Enterprise Admins group from the built-in Adminstrator account. Click Apply.
    4. Add Domain Admins, Schema Admins, and Enterprise Admins group back to
    built-in Adminstrator account. Click Apply.
    5. Logoff from the SBS server.
    6. If you have additonal DC on the network, logon to each DC and repeat
    Step-3 and
    7. Logon to the SBS server as the built-in Administrator. Restart the SBS
    integrated setup.

    Note: If you have multiple DC on the domain, you may need to follow the
    steps below.

    Use ntdsutil to transfer all the FSMO roles to SBS. Please use "Transfer"
    of "Seize" for the FSMO roles. "Transfer" is one of the option in ntdsutil.
    "Trasfer" doesn't work, then use "Seize".

    After you have completed the step, you should use ntdsutil or dcdiag to
    confirm SBS
    indeed holds all the FSMO roles

    To view the FSMO roles:

    To Transfer/Seize the FSMO roles:

    After you finish transfering the FSMO roles, rerun the SBS integrated
    setup. You
    may need to reboot all domain controllers before running the setup again.
