Failing Internet Address Management Wizard in SBS 2011

Hello All--
I am hoping some of you will have options for me to use as a fix for this issue. I'm in the process of upgrading a client's network from an existing SBS 2003 server to a new SBS 2011 machine. After installing SBS 2011 on the new machine and running all available Windows Updates, I am now following the steps in the Migration Wizard on the Home panel of the SBS 2011 Console.
I had no problem completing the first two steps. However, when I get to the third step, Configure the Internet address, that wizard errors out on me. When I start the Internet Address Management Wizard, and put in my choices, the wizard begins to run but errors out on the second step, "Exchange e-mail: @DockandDoorHandling.com".
When I click to get the details of the error, I get the following information: "The wizard cannot configure Exchange e-mail for your domain. To correct this problem, run the Fix my network task on the Connectivity subtab of the Network tab of the Windows SBS Console."
I will attach my DPCW log file to this post in hopes that it will help some of you out there to help me with my issue.
I HAVE run the Fix My Network Wizrard and all that it lists for an issue is the fact that it can't automatically configure the ports on my router for me, which I believe to be an unrelated issue to this post. I HAVE also gone into my router's settings and manually configured the ports to forward to the new machine with SBS 2011 on it, so I believe that part is taken out of the equation.
I look forward to all of your keen responses. THANK YOU!

Start by opening the services control panel and looking for any automatic services in a stopped state and try starting them. Based on the log you posted, the first time the IAMW was run, an incorrect/invalid name was entered and ma have left some exchange services in a stopped state. Subsequent attempts to run the wizard are now failing to connect to exchange at all.

Thank you SO MUCH! That was spot-on advice. I had wracked my head for over two hours perusing various blogs, kb articles etc. I should have come here first! LOL.

Thanks again!!
