I have a problem with windows server 2003 that is sending notification to other servers that it will shut down in 60 minutes

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Can you review the application log and find out what is kicking the restart or shutdown into action? Usually you see this when you have auto updates turned on, if a reboot is required after the update, it will restart and send out the notification… or if you have any scheduled events that call the shutdown executable… I run batch files all the time to restart servers in the middle of the night when know one is around… FontanaTech

    I managed to find the cause,thanks a lot . Now how do I go about solving the problem. Here is the cause: The server will be shut down in 60 minutes because an explicit domain trust was found. You must remove this trust relationship to continue using this server.

    Is this server a Small Business Server? That is the indication from it shutting down in 60 minutes as a Small Business Server does not support trust. Let us know if this is the case of using a Small Business Server operating system source disk - even if you NEVER complete the Small Business Server configuration and only bring it to the "server 2003' level.

    Hi Dwiebesick It is a small business server.And I reformatted the disk drive and installed a fresh copy of Small Business Server and when I check the DNS there are no trust because I did not configure anything. Is there a way of disabling this trust ,my active directory is not accessible and i THINK IT DOES NOT EXIST.

    Small Business Server 2003 Must be a Domain Controller there is NO way around this. That is why it's shutting down.

    In your first message you mentioned 'sending notification to other servers'. Small Business Server must be the first server - root of your forest. You can then add other member servers to your SMALL BUSINESS SERVER network. You cannot add a small business server to an existing network. This is what I think you are trying to do. If this is correct, then the error message you get is correct. The SBS server is trying to make active directory connections which is not supported. The SBS server must hold all 5 FSMO roles. To try and help you, can you explain exactly what you are trying to accomplish by using this small business server in an existing network?
