SBS 2011 installation failing on IBM x3400
Posted on 2011-10-18
I have a brand new IBM x3400 M3 server and I am trying to install SBS 2011 standard on it.
I am having issues with the SBS install, it is failing at the DCPROMO part, the error in the log is error 94 ExitBadLocalAdminPwd I have changed the local admin password to a complex password but it still fails. THis is a clean install not a migration, the IBM server and SBS Server have been installed using the IBM Server Guide disk.
I am a little confused as to why the error is pointing to the local admin password when before it fails it asks me to create a new user account and enter the password.
I have rerun the install from scratch after reformatting the disks and get the same problem.
Any advice please other than throwing the server through the window?
