The existing Small Business Server must be removed from the network after completing the migration

Another computer running Small Business Server was detected in the network. Only one computer running Small Business Server can exist in a Windows Small Business Server domain.

If you are migrating from a previous version of Small Business Server, two computers running Small Business Server can exist in the domain during the server migration process.

If you are completing a server migration, it is recommended that you download the whitepaper from the Microsoft Web site:

  • For Small Business Server 2000 migrations, see the Microsoft Web site (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=16414).
  • For Small Business Server 4.5 migrations, see the Microsoft Web site (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=16415).
    ImportantImportant
    Within 7 days, you must verify that the new server is running properly, and then remove the original server.

If you are not completing a server migration, you must remove the existing computers running Small Business Server from the network. During Setup, you must create a new Small Business Server domain. The new domain cannot have the same full DNS name for internal domain name or NetBIOS domain name as the other computers running Small Business Server. Additionally, the domains cannot exist on the same network.

If you are completing a server migration, select the I acknowledge all warnings check box to continue Setup. If you are not completing a server migration, remove the existing computers running Small Business Server from the network, and then click Check Again to refresh the list of Setup requirements.

noteNote
Although you cannot have more than one computer running Small Business Server in the domain, you can have additional domain controllers running Windows Server operating systems.
