*** Configuring Remote Access Policy returned ERROR 80072030

I've installed Small Biz Server 2003 with all updates and service packs, I've configured all other services on SBS.
I keep on getting an error when trying to set up Remote Access from the the wizard.

Found the solution ...

 Had the identical problem and searched everywhere for days. Finally found one
post that instantly solved this error, at least for me. It seems the remote
access wizard is following a script that expects to find the "MyBusiness" OU
in AD. If you rename that OU, as I had, it always fails. Simply name the OU
back to "MyBusiness"!
If Microsoft would have this error report what the script was looking for,
but could not find, I suppose the fix would often be readily apparent. A
shame they don't! Of course, it would be even better if the 'wizard' were
smarter, and asked you what the name of your business OU is! Talk about bad
hard-coding of changeable info!

I guess that would explain why i kept on getting errors....after the first problem was fixed; i got another error

Updating CMP template returned OK
Updating CMS template returned OK
Updating SED template returned OK

*** CRRASCommit::CommitEx returned ERROR 80004005

After googling for 1/2 hr to find the solution, I found a link that said to uninstall Windows Server 2003 SP1...
so I did, health monitor did not work , so i unistalled that too.  The wizard/script for Remote Access finished w/o any errors.

I previously had all the Small Biz Sp1 installed correctly etc...,I followed the instructions from Microsofts website on how to install Small Biz SP1, not sure why i didn't have the latest wizrras.dll and some of the scripts wouldn't work...

So right now I am without Windows Server 2003 SP1 or Small Biz SP 1, should I just go through the steps again to install Smalll Biz SP1 again? or would i be better off wiping my server ( this would be a huge pain in the ....)

thanks for your help

You should definitely go through all of the steps to install SBS SP1.  Because if you installed JUST Windows Server 2003 SP1 without the rest, then you would receive those errors.  If you are now without SBS SP1, you never had it... as it can't be uninstalled.

There are 5 components to SBS SP1 and all must be installed for things to work.

I ran into some more errors trying to reinstall Smabll Biz SP 1,  got through steps 1-4 , but install SP1 for Small biz has given me the following errors...

It stops about 1/4 way and a windows pops stating it has encountered an error, for more info
check the log in C:\program files\microsoft integration\window ssmall business server 2003\logs\setup.log. then correct the error and run service pack 1 setup again.

I checked the setup.log file and everything returns success; then i checked the errorlog.txt and see that it has erros the last two lines

Server Tools: [2] BCreateProcess of DUpdate.exe failed with error [3]!.
Server Tools: [2] RunOMADupdate() failed with error [80070003]

prior to that, i had to remove Outlook Client deployment and re-add it , because it had given me error about that...

I think my system is hosed, because I had installed Exchanged SP2 also.  I do recall the system having Small Business service pack 1 installed because i had checked by right clicking on my computer -> properties and it displayed Service Pack 1...

Either way , let that be a lesson to me ... should have never uninstalled Windows Server 2003 SP1 .  Going to back up data and reinstall ... Thanks for the info and your help!.

You should be able to find plenty of info on those:
