I am trying to install SBS 2003 and first bit windows worked OK. So windows is on etc.

I then broke out of wizard to follow article. As I am going from Windows 2000 AD to SBS 2003 and turning off 2000 DC.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/884453/en-us

that worked fine also. Now when I run the SBS install wizard it never gets past step 30 of 42

Any ideas.

Regards

Richard

Going from a Windows 2000 AD to SBS 2003 does not entail following that KB article.  You should note that the article specifically states, "This article does not intend to provide a migration solution"  It is intended ONLY as a workaround in the event that there are extenuating circumstances which may prevent you from properly upgrading or migrating your Windows 2000 domain.

You'll find the proper upgrade paths outlined here:  http://www.microsoft.com/WindowsServer2003/sbs/upgrade/default.mspx

I might also note that the stalling on step 30 is expected if you haven't adprep'd your existing DC per step ONE of that KB.

One other reason this happens, by the way, is if you previously had another DC on your domain and it is still listed in your Win2K Server.  SBS is trying to contact ALL DCs on the domain and if it can't contact them it will fail at step 30.
