SBS 2003 keeps shutting down every 1 hour.
Posted on 2007-04-07
I have installed a new small business server 2003 in an existing SBS network. I thought I had 14 days to remove the existing SBS server, but statement below from microsoft says it is only 7 days. Now the server shuts down every 1 hour. Is there any way to increase the shutdown value until we can finish the migrations to the new SBS 2003 server?

"This issue can occur if the Windows 2003 Small Business Server integrated setup was not completed. Windows 2003 Small Business Server must be a domain controller and hold all FSMO roles for the domain. In order to facilitate migration from an existing domain, the Small Business Server can function for 7 days after installing without being promoted to a domain controller. After that time, the Small Business Server must be promoted to a domain controller using the integrated setup. If the integrated setup is not completed, the SBCore service will initiate a shut down of the server."
