Unable to complete Connect to Internet Wizard
Posted on 2011-03-04
I have a situation where the SBS 2011 Connect to Internet Wizard is unable to complete successfully. I am connected to the Internet (manually) with a functioning DHCP. But I can't complete the CIW. Unfortunately I cannot run the Internet Address Management Wizard because it requires me to complete the CIW. I love the 2011 wizards...until you hit a situation that doesn't match the perfect scenario.
My customer is assigned a /26 subnet from a class A routable address block by one of their critical partners. They do not have a choice in the matter. This is the subnet that we must use because of various VPNs. Even though it uses "routable addresses" it is protected by a Cisco firewall and routing is very tightly controlled.
Before I start the daunting process of manually configuring SBS without wizards, any thoughts that would allow me to bypass this error message and resume using the SBS 2011 Wizards?
