I have an SBS 2k3 server that is functioning fine with 8 XP clients. I'm now trying to join a new laptop with Vista Business to the domain. I've already applied the hotfix from MS KB 926505 to the server.
When I go to https://server/connectcomputer
the server responds and I choose the "connect computer" link. The machine downloads nshelp.exe and apparently starts the install, but then errs out with "An error occurred while trying to copy the client setup files." The message goes on to say that if we're not using a proxy server (we're not) that we may need to reload the client setup using add/remove programs for SBS in maintenance mode.
I started down that path, but it seems that it's fixing to completely reinstall SBS (and I couldn't find anything that referred to "maintenance mode"), which I'm not prepared to do with 8 functioning workstations attached already.
Any other suggestions?
