SBS 2008 Installation issues: DNS issues

Posted on 2011-05-09

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have completed an install of SBS 2008 on a server. I originally had issues with the Exchange 2007 installing but have since got around that and created a clean install of SBS 2008. I have the following issues now since install.

The DNS forwarders cannot be removed.
      Tried going into the DNS Properties but I cannot even find the Forwarders section!

The Certificate Authority component cannot be configured.
The DNS dynamic update service is not installed.
        Tried the Fix my Network but the software crashes trying to run.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

How to you figure that you have DNS issues if your software is crashing?
What errors are you seeing in the Event Viewer or on the screens when it crashes?

I re-installed SBS 2008 and this time the install worked without any issues. In regards to the DNS issues, these are the installation errors I received upon completion of the initial install.
