Cannot add users using the /connectcomputer wizard

Hi,

Our server gave some errors concerning backup and SP2 and we reinstalled the server.
All of the clients were in the domain before the reinstall.
We removed the users from the domain.
Recreated the users on the server (same usernames as the previous installation).
Now we want to join the first computer to the domain using the /connectcomputer wizard and we get the following error: You are not authorized to view this page.
HTTP Error 403.6 - Forbidden: IP address of the client has been rejected.
Internet Information Services (IIS)

Little detail:During installation we used an other ip adress for the server. we've changed this IP adress to the right one after the installation finished. We had also noticed that the DHCP server was not installed during the install of SBS, so we've installed this afterwards.

Who can urgently help me?

Thanx
JD

Make sure you have run the Change Server IP Address Wizard to fully change the IP.  Also, be sure you followed all the steps at the bottom of http://sbsurl.com/dhcp to ensure that you properly restored DHCP to your SBS.  Then be sure to rerun the Configure Email and Internet Connection Wizard (CEICW -- linked as "Connect to the Internet on the To-Do list in the Server Management Console)

A visual how-to for that is here:  http://sbsurl.com/ceicw

Then... Did you unjoin the workstations from the old domain (even though it has the same name all your SIDs (randomly generated security ID strings) are different.  You should also review the steps outlined in http://sbsurl.com/rejoin to be sure you delete the appropriate files and registry keys so that the workstations will join properly.  In this situation it's not necessary to rename the workstations.

Thanks for the answer. I didn't use the wizard to change the IP for the server. So when rerunning the CEICW wizard, I saw that it didn't got the right credentials for DNS. We've changed them to the right ones and problem solved. We are now able to perform the wizard to join computers to the new SBS.

Thanks.

This I forgot to mention:
I know now why it got other settings, and why DHCP server was not installed at first.
I Reinstalled the server at home overnight. At home, I've got another server 2003 who acts as a file and printserver but also as a DNS and DHCP server.
I gave the server I reinstalled a DHCP ip adress so I would be able to perform activation and do all of the updates. I was going to give the server a fixed IP afterwards (but didn't know about the wizard to do that).

Well, it's still not too late to run the Change Server IP Address Wizard (in fact you can run that whenever you like) it can only help to insure that you've got things configured properly.  Just run it with the current IP address.
