Hi, I have set up SBS Essentials on a test server and trying to connect a test client.
Removed old domain on pc by disjoining domain and joining workgroup.
Then using server connect thru browser.
Configuration churns for a minute or so and then says "cant find AD AC. check name of domain." may also have said cant find computer account on domain, but cant be sure
I did ipconfig and not showing the default gateway of router.
(server and router appear to be properly set up with static ips for server and router, and scope is all matching existing network , ie the network I am going to replace.
I did ip release and still no joy.
I will run it again and post detailed errors messages.
The problem also seems to be that the local area network connection is amiss, says unknown network.
Any intermediate clues will be appreciated.
Should I be doing pings or other tests.
