I tried to get Help and Support service installed and I used the i386 from the disk of another server which also has SBS2003 I.e. Both servers have SBS2003  which were purchased at different dates. I chose to overwrite files when I was prompted. I then reinstalled SP2 and rebooted remotely. The server did not comeback up. I am prepared for the worse.

What damage have I done and what should I be prepared to do. many thanks.

The system booted up as normal but I could not access any websites and the clients could not logon. I rebooted the server and all is working well.

Not too sure...  all depends on what the console is doing right now.
Do you have console access?  You may need to get the original media and repair the OS if systems files are corrupted.

It could be something as simple as the server has a hardware error and the bios is looking for user intervention.

Hi There,

Do you have a backup of your server?

If you do, then you do have the option of performing a SBS2003 repair. That should rewbuild the server with any compnents that may be damaged.

If you have the orginal disks, you can insert media 1 and chose to perform an SBS Repair.

However if you have a good FULL BACKUP, you can chose to restore the backup... What do you have on hand?
