Doing an SBS 2003 to SBS 2008 migration. When I run the "Connect to the internet wizard"  I get a "cannot configure DNS. Restart the DNS service, or run the Fix My Network wizard." Of course none of these work and I cannot proceed to the next step (although I can connect to the internet). DNS is running on both servers and DNS settings and the NIC are configuresd properly.

If server has two NIC, then Disable one.

Also Run SBS 2008 Best Practice Analyser tool and fix the errors reported.

I changed: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SmallBusinessServer\Networking\
"LastBasicConfigSuccessful"=dword:00000001"
It allowed me to continue the migration.
Still checking on what caused the failure.
