Geoffrey, did you reinstall sbs over the existing system or fdisk and start 
from scratch? Also you need to remove all entries to this server on your wins 
and DNS servers. If you don't you will receive errors related to existing set 
of credentials already exist. Remove the entires and let the system build new 
ones. See it this works otherwise - reinstall the system from scratch. Exchange 
2000 runs everything in IIS so be especially careful with IIS configurations.

Subject: [exchangelist] Exchange 2000 disaster

Hello All,
I need some help but I need to give the full background so please bear with me.
I have a client with SBS server and Exchange 2000 installed on his company 
server. At intitial configuration, the hard drive crashed corrupting the 
existing operating system. I reinstalled a new operating system but since then 
I have had many problems. 
The SBS installs without error but when I attempt to configure Exchange 2000, 
using administrator 5.5 which is what is provided, I have started recieving 
many errors. I have to this point managed to get the office mail working to a 
certain extent, I.E. users can send mail through the exchange server to the 
internet and mail is coming in from the ISP to the server but is not being 
distributed to indivdual users. As well, in Exchange administrator 5.5, I 
cannot create a new Internet Mail Service as I am told that there is already a 
service in existence on the server. I cannot see the service however, all that 
is listed is an SMTP connector that does not allow me to configure for 
indvidual mailbox delivery. I also cannot access public folders in order to 
share contacts and the calender. 
I need helo in a big way. If the best solution is removing and reinstalling 
Exchange I am willing but I have tried this and still recieve that same errors 
which is I believe, due to the fact that many exchange entries and files are 
not being removed. I also tried removing and reinstalling the active directory 
connector and the installing a new Internet Mail Service but when I complete 
the wizard i am prompted that files are missing and I cannot find them anywhere.
Thanks in advance
