SBS 2003 R2 basic, new server
company.local domain on inside / company.com domain on outside.
Upon setup one of our techs accidently plugged in the "old win 2000 domain controller" with THE SAME domain (netBIOS) wise anyway, not .local :)
After that it kinda "took control" of the domain as some weird error logs were appearing on the SBS 2003 box. I don't know if its related to that, or after browsing the web... if its cuz we didn't "blow out" and reinstall fresh a Dell OEM pre-install of SBS 2003???
But anyhow we are getting Event ID errors regarding to group policy cannot connect to OEM_SBS_domain with some numbers appended.
I've read that you can use ADSI to edit but its risky... just trying to decide if we should blow out the install and start over. Client wouldn't be all that happy, but we want to make it right, and stable ;)
Other little errors are happening with may be related to this like other PC's showing up in the event log on the server as losing their SID etc... we were just re-joining them using \\server\connectcomputer.
Are OEM pre-installs really that bad??? Our guys seem to do like 50/50. Clean install some and others just open the box and follow prompts. Out of literally hundreds of installs... never had this issue before... but by browsing I see we are not totally alone!
