Are you having the SQL and DC on the same box?

"You cannot start the SQL Server service after you install Active Directory on a Windows Server 2003-based member server or you run the DCPromo command on a Windows Server 2003-based domain controller"

ok, I think I know whats going on.  Its the connection to SQL server. I think we have shared outside SQL server. "connectionString="Data Source=sknet87.gonewithewind.com,25000;" Do you know who I can talk to? I meant which compnay host this shared SQL server?

Thank you

"I found the answer" is no reason to delete the question.
(1) If we helped getting there, comments should be accepted.
(2) If you got a solution yourself, you should post it, and accept that (maybe in combination with Expert comments) instead of deleting the question. There might be others having the same issue, and they would like where to look for.
