SBS install problems - wont let me install additional componants. pop3 connector fails
Posted on 2006-07-21
i recently reinstalled SBS after my raid controller fried and corrupted all my data. i was able to transfer all of the FSMO to another server and preserve active directory.
i installed the SBS on a new machine, using the same installation disks as before. the OS installed fine, SBS installed fine, i used the /disasterrecovery to restore exchange and got all the mail back.
after doing the disaster recovery i tried to continue the SBS installation to add the server tools and such, it then tells me SBS cannot be installed on this computer, no explanation, just refuses to install.
SBS seems to be working fine except the Pop3 connector window, when i open it, it opens then immediately closes, it logs no errors in my logs.
i'm sure its due to the failed SBS install, what can i do to repair the pop3 connector and is there any way to get SBS to allow me to complete the install.
it locked me out of installing the rest of SBS because like a dumb dumb, i turned hyperthreading on durring one of the reboots and the second it detected 4 CPU's it went in to a tizzy fit.
