Is this a TRIAL?  If so, then it has expired.

the other thing would be is that you have another copy of this software running around.

This is purchased directly from MIcrosoft Certified Vendors and even the SBA sealed pack is opened by me.

You don't have a choice...SBS must be run as a domain controller and it can't be a stand alone machine.  If you don't have it setup as a DC then this is why it is shutting down.

I was just about to suggest what luv2smile commented...since we eliminated the licensing issue regarding EULA, that is the next thing in line.  What was your reasoning for NOT making the server a domain controller?

You can't use any Enterprise Products with SBS

I'll repeat here... there is NO reason you can't use Enterprise Products with SBS.  juanfermin has misinterpreted the phrase ">>>> YOU WANT FEATURES ONLY AVAILABLE IN THE ENTERPRISE EDITIONS<<<<" taken from a description of why you would want the Transition Pack.

What this means is that there are certain features which are only available on Enterprise Editions.  But there is no reason WHATSOEVER that you can't add an Enterprise Edition server to an SBS network.
