It shows two of the three with but in the default ddsbso8 which is our server name it shows the fully qualified bane of the server. The example below shows So instead of the FQDN of the server shouldn't it be

This new interface with SBS 2008 is going to take some getting use to.

The FQDN should match whatever the DNS entries on the internet are. So if that is then that is what you need to set in there.
