Installing MS SBS standard 2011 - errors

moisesperez used Ask the Experts™
I have a new DL380 g7 and I am installing Small business server standard 2011. I am creating total new AD domain but I got some errors during the install. I was wondering if anyone know what the log means. I am not done yet but need to make sure those will not affect everythign else..
Note: I currently have a SBS 2008 running for this client and we will be removing from network later.
Error log is attached bellow
Thanks in advance...

First question, why are you doing a clean install and not migrating?

Secondly, where do you see this error message?
Philip ElderTechnical Architect - HA/Compute/Storage

When setting up SBS 2011 make sure to use a "Real Name" for your domain admin account.

Please do not use some form of the following:
First: Admin
Last: istrator

This _will_ break things.

Make sure that the domain name _and_ server name for the new setup does _not_ match the previous SBS installation's setup. This will cause nothing but grief going forward. Look up Group Policy Tattoos.

Old domain: Domain.Local
New domain: NewDomain.Local or Domain.LAN



@demazter I still need to have the other server running with some old apps  (no compatible with 64bit) so I can not migrate those there are less than 20 users to move to new server.
@MPECSInc. Yes I did created an account Network Administrator and setup a username NetAdmin but it did not take it.. i already resolve that issue since the account was disabled and renamed the account. Server seems to be OK but I just want to make sure if any of those error mean something else.

I suggest a fresh install using a proper domain admin account. The account given in the Answer File or during the initital set up steps is critical to the successful install and configuration of the OS.
