Whoops – didn’t quite get all of it


That was kind of weird – my last post didn’t have my ending comments.


What I meant to add in was that since I didn’t have much to report on, I was interested in whatever questions or other suggestions/comments people wanted to send my way. I’d like to think of this as an opportunity for dialogue with people who are interested in SBS – whenever I attend user group meetings, in Seattle or elsewhere, I can spend hours talking about Microsoft and SBS. Since I can’t spend all my time on the road, I have to try it some other way, so feel free to post comments/questions if you like.


Thanks.

    What a Mess – I installed SBS 2 weeks ago. And since it was being used as a webserver I disabled many services that we were not using (kerberos etc… DFS etc…)

    What do you know … The server shuts itself down just like that!!!.

    Besides for a cryptic error message in the event logs an hour before it shut down there was no other warning.

    What’s the big deal to put up a warning dialog everytime someone logs in. I thought that it was understood. Servers are designed to run non stop. YOU NEVER SHUTDOWN A SERVER WITHOUT GIVING AMPLE WARNING!!!!!!!

    Whats so hard to understand about that.

    The SBS Server needs to be the Primary DC in the domain or you will get that. It has to be a Domain Contoller no if ands or butts about it. If your purpose of purchasing SBS 2003 for the price thinking you where going to get a cheap server OS there is some catches to it.

    What do you think of the Flyers getting rid or Rechi and Amonte? Do you think we’ll take the cup this year (assuming they don’t strike).

    I don’t have any beefs with the fact that Microsoft put certain limits on the machine.

    What gets me is the way it is enforced – Instead of a clear warning that the machine is about to get knocked out – they give this cryptic message in the logs and thats it.

    It’s in the documentation that it needs to be the Primary domain controller. And if you open up the log files it is jumping up and down giving you a warning. Look it your log files. But apparently you didn’t read that either? 😉

    The sbscore service freaks out if it’s not a PDC.
