Installed a new E2K with SP3 on a W2K SP4 server on Tuesday. DC are W2K3.
Did forest prep and domain prep and all tested good. 


After installing E2K and SP3, all services started but getting NDRs. OK,
looks like permissions. Reboot and nothing worked. Errors kind of indicated
could not contact a DC. Reran all tests and all looked good. Then I realized
I was logged on with the wrong user. I had created an exadmin user as a
member of the domain admin group. However, I had installed with the
installer user, which is a member of domain admin and enterprise admin, but
not local admin group. Thinking permission problem, I uninstalled and then
review and reinstall tomarrow.


Now I wonder about W2K SP4. Again, this was a clean new box.


Any comments or suggestions?
