Hi all, am kinda new to windows SBS 2003 and i am having some trouble setting it up.

I have just configured active directory,DNS and installed the included Exchange server 2003.

The problem is, I can't seem to be able to connect to the internet on this machine as it keeps on telling me to disable the DHCP on the router which i have done a couple of times to be very sure that it is diasbled. I have restarted the server and the router again after disabling DHCP on the router but it still remains the same.

Please i need help fast.

Also, Please can someone give me a step to step guide on how to set up the exchange server to pull all the company's email from the internet. Currently, everybody logs on to the mail platform from Internet Explorer and i want the exchange server to beable to pull the mails and distribute over outlook.

Thanks in anticipation.

Hi,

Is any other DHCP server /service running in your NW /?

Thanks,

Thanks for your quick response.

The only DHCP service that was running was the from from the Router. And i have disabled it a long time ago. No other hardware on the netwok can run services like that.

    I suggest that you download DHCP Discovery and run this tool and confirm that there is no other DHCP server running on your network. DHCP Discovery SBS 2003 wants to be the only DHCP server on your network and to properly setup the SBS 2003, use the wizards for proper installation. There are many places on the internet for specific help with SBS.

    Thanks a lot for your help guyz. I have it sorted out. i enabled the second NIC on the server and used that one as the NIC for internet connection and the other one for Server-client communication. Through the wizard, I was able to configure the Exchange server too, Now it pulls mails from the webmail and the pop3 connector delivers to outlook. But am still having a problem sending out mails as i can't open Exchange Server 5.5. It comes with an error message anytime i try to open it. What else can i do? There's this MAPI3***.dll file it's complaining about. i can't remember what the error code is. Please i need help fast.

    have you did the SP2 updates to the server. if so remove and add the updates that sp2 puts on one by one there is a patch that mess the DHCP and DNS functions up. ran into this while setting up a small business server for a client. and this seemed to fix it But Yes SBS 2003 likes to be in controll but you can setup a network using the router as your DHCP with this OP Ya just got to watch the service Packs.

    Please clarify your problem as SBS 2003 does not have Exchange 5.5 but rather Exchange 2003.

    @ Dwiee It's funny though. But on my own version of SBS 2003. I have Exchange 2003 and Exchange 5.5 is included in the program list wen you go to Exchange from the Programs menu. I am so confused guyz. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing Exchange 2003, but the problem is still there?
