an error occurred while configuring a component in SBS 2003

By jgreer ·
I am running the Configure e-mail and Internet connection wizard on SBS 2003. During the wizard setup it gives me error "an error occurred while configuring a component" -- I reviewed the posting for the issue on Microsoft and my settings are both set to Integrated Active Directory and my icwlog doesn't carry the listed error. Has anyone else had this problem?

My network setup is SBS 2003 behind a Sonic firewall. I verified dns 1 and 2 on the server are for the T1 provider and the router is set to the sonice since it handles DHCP. I am out of ideas on this one.

Server Problems

I'm not familiar with SBS 2003 but we use Server 2003 Standard Edition. Can't imagine there's a difference. Have you checked that the NIC works? You could test that by connecting a crossover between the server and a laptop. You shouldn't have to run any Internet connection wizard. That stuff is bull. Simply provide the NIC an IP address and connect to your network. As for DHCP, why not use the server? It alleviates the router of a service taken care of by an internal device and adds a little more security to your network.

SBS is not the same as Server 2003

by jlehman In reply to Server Problems

I hate to tell you this but the wizard is the best/only way to correctly configure the server. I know it is not the MCSE way but the wizards need to be run or the server will not function properly. I work on SBS servers and am a SBS specialist.

As for the problem, when do you receive the error? From your post, it looks like the issue is because your Sonicwall is handling DHCP. Disable it on the firewall and enable it on your SBS server. That should fix your problem. How many network cards do you have? You should also leave your server as the primary DNS server and the others are secondary DNS servers.

SBS 2003 wants to see itself as the primary DNS server.
