Desc:
Multiple domain controllers running Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server have been detected in your domain. To prevent this computer from shutting down in the future, you must remove all but one of these from the domain.

We only have 1 DC. We have never had another one.  How can I make this error go away?

Thanks

I think you are only allowed ONE SBS in your network, no matter DC or member server.

So you only have the one domain controller in your network? Do you have any other servers in your network?

Can you provide a brief overview of your network so that I can get a better sense of its setup?

Is SBS that DC?
Was the SBS 2K3 disk used to install the base OS and not continue on with the SBS OS?
Is SBS installed and fully configured as per the licensing agreement?

There is only 1 server. It is SBS 2003 and it is a DC. there are no other servers. Everything is licensed and legit.

Did you finish phase 2 of the install along with the SBS To Do list?

Can you type "netdom query fsmo" at a command line and post the results here?

netdom query fsmo

Schema owner                server.domain-name.local
Domain role owner           server.domain-name.local
PDC role                    server.domain-name.local
RID pool manager            server.domain-name.local
Infrastructure owner        server.domain-name.local

The command completed successfully.

I subbed in "domain-name" for our actual domain.

The SBS setup phases:
http://blog.mpecsinc.ca/2008/01/sbs-2k3-r2-setup-steps-and-resources.html

Phase 1: Setup base Win2K3 OS with final reboot into the Server 2003 desktop. We cancel the phase 2 setup that automatically starts to install the necessary OS drivers etc.

Phase 2: Insert Disk 1 and run setup to continue into Phase 2: AD installation, Exchange, SBS components, and more.

Phase 3: Final reboot into SBS OS presents the SBS To Do list that must be completed to have a properly configured SBS OS.

Do you have multiple NICs in this SBS box? If so is DNS listening on both NICS?

Something in the SBS components is not registered properly. The SBCore service is that: The core SBS service that identifies that the server is properly setup and functioning with the SBS components.

Control Panel --> Add/Remove Programs --> Small Business Server. Go through the add/remove to reinstall the SBS components. Hopefully that registeres whatever is not functioning.
