Shared modem service

By ClickHappy ·
I am trying to initiate the shared modem service on a server that I recently installed SBS 2000 onto. I have a couple of other servers that have sbs 2000 on them, but I didn't install it. To install the shared modem service on THOSE servers, all I had to do was to go to the Add/Remove programs (NOT Add/Remove Windows Components), find SBS 2000 in the list and click change/remove. From there it takes me to a menu where I can add Exchange, SQL, Shared Modem Services, and the like. On the server with the new install, SBS 2000 does not show up in the Add/Remove programs list. Did I do something wrong on the install? The diska contained SBS Service Pack 3. I went to Window Update and it installed Service Pack 4.

One other question: I made this server a domain controller and added a couple of computers to the domain. The first one took to the domain no problems. The second one said it had been added to the domain and asked me to reboot. I rebooted, but when I went to log in it said that the Date/Time did not match up. How do I fix this problem? How could they possibly have the exact same time?

Any help on these matters would be greatly appreciated.

well the shared fax service IS a windows componet of SBS. Don't know about your other installs of SBS but to install it on a SBS server that it wasn't previously installed on, you've got to insert the SBS CD disk 1. The files for the shared fax/modem services are on the CD.

Note: When the SBS CD 1 setup disk runs, a setup menu will show installed items like ISA or SQL shared fax or shared modem and you just choose it to install.

date/time problems? to a net time /setsntp:<time service server> from the command line. Clients normally get time from the DC but if you don't have an authoritative time server specified, run the cmd line option mentioned above.
