ReInstalling SBS 2003
Posted on 2011-03-13
Have a client with an SBS 2003 - Lots of problems - Mother board can't take any more memory - Hard Drives almost full.
We decided to basically build a new server , rather than mess around with trying to get 2 SBS 2003's on the same domain and migrate the AD - as the number of users is only 4 -
Got the intial OS loded - all the updates done then go to instal the actual SBS software. First problem I ran into was it told me that The domain name was already in use - so I just changed the Netbios name to something a bit different. Obviously a mistake
I don't have anyting really loaded on the New machine yet (users etc)
I would like to have the net bios name the same as the domain name - I know that I can't rename it - not supported by Microsoft.
What's the fastest way to get back to the point just before I hit the Continue icon on the desktop. Tried to uninstall but of course Exchange is saying - can't do that
Any ideas would be appreciated
