There is no way for an SBS to NOT be configured as a domain.  So, most likely the server is not completely installed.

I think you need to relook at the configuration again so that you can understand what's going on.

IT sounds like only Disk 1 was used to install, and left at that. Try running setup from SBS Disk one to install all the components and set it up as a DC/Exchange server etc.
