Http Connect SBS 2008

Have a windows 7 pro machine that I have added to our domain on SBS 2008 using the Http://connect  It all seems to go fine until the reboot into the SBS Netsetup user where the wizard just does not continue.  It logs into the user but the wizard never comes up.  If I log off the sbs netsetup it automatically logs me back in.  I have tried to manuall add it to the domain using my computer but when logging into my user account on the domain it insteads logs in as a temp profile.  In no way can I seem to be able to login to the correct account after adding to the domain

Are you running IE "as Administrator"?  Is the account you're using already set up in AD?

You lof int to the setup as the administrator in order to execute the program over the intranet.  It is not part of the domain until after the application has completed.

Just as an FYI if you were using Windows XP Profiles for older accounts you would have to set up version 2 profiles for windows 7 accounts as the older profiles are not compatible with windows XP.

The best way to do this is to go into your network share where your profiles are located, Create a new folder and name it username$.V2  (assuming your profile folders are shared as username$). Right click this folder and advanced sharing to the same as the folder name, and set security rights to allow the user full permision to that folder so windows can upload his profile to it.

Now try logging into your windows 7 computer and you should no longer be logged in as a temporary profile.

I'm not sure what your issue is with connecting to the domain but have you installed the latest update to allow windows 7 computers to connect to SBS 2008 (I assume you did as the wizard is completing) but try redownloading and applying the patch again (could of been corrupted) reboot the server then reconnect to domain.

If this is a Windows 7 Machine, and you click on Start > Programs > IE > Right Click > Run As Administrator
This is the local machine admin, not the domain admin because of course it's not part of the domain.
See if that doesn't make a big difference

I had the same issue.  Automatically logged in as SBS_netsetup no matter if I shut computer off, or tried to switch users, or anything.  The computer account (a win 7 box) was showing up in the domain from the first attempt.  I just re-ran http://connect and it fixed it.  I was logged on as local administrator.
