Hi again!

I just tried installing E2003 on a W2003 server (a virtual machine)
that is not a DC worked like a charm!

The difference between the 2 servers are: (VM refers to my virtual
server image)

- VM was not a DC
- VM did not have DNS installed
- VM did not have WINS installed
- VM did not have Routing and Remote Access installed
- VM did not have 2 MS patches installed (KB830352 and KB832894)

I don't know which of these configuration might be the problem but I
will try reinstalling my server from scratch, promote it to DC and
install E2003.

I'll keep you all inform of any progress regarding this issue.

Have a nice day!

Jacques.
