SBS 2003 Connect to the Internet Wizard Fails
Posted on 2006-05-08
I am working on an SBS 2003 Server which had been working perfectly fine. However, I was working with the Monitoring and Reporting tools yesterday and received an error message telling me that there is a problem and I need to reinstall the Server Tools – which I stupidly did. During Server Tools reinstall, the Intranet component failed. Did some research and found that the patch 832880 was required. Installed the patch but did not resolve the problem. Besides losing access to the companyweb, none of the clients can access the Internet now – which is the real problem. When I attempt to run the Connect to Internet Wizard, the network configuration component fails. I have been on the phone with Microsoft Support ($500-critical business support-ouch!) but they have not been able to resolve the problem. They seem to believe it is how the two nics are configured. But I followed SBS Best Practices and I reminded them that everything was fine until Server Tools was reinstalled.
Is there a connection between the Intranet component and network configuration? MS support says there is not and it is just a coincidence.
If anybody has any advice or suggestions where to go from here I would really appreciate it.
