RWA Can't Manually Configure Domain...Unique problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • To TechNet:

    I am trying to configure my 2011 Windows SBS Essentials RWA. I have read many forums as a well as contacted my domain provider (namecheap). We are stuck. Here is where I am.

    I am trying to configure my domain, but cannot. Using the configure domain Wizard I enter my domain. The wizard runs a check and displays that is it provided by eNomCentral, great a Microsoft partner this should be easy....not. The domain was purchased and managed through namecheap, a eNom re-seller. So where does that leave me. I can not A) continue installation using the automatic process becuase I don't not have a user name and password associated with eNomCentral, nor B) continue with the manual installation because that option does not appear because the domain is "provided by eNom." 

    Any suggestions, would get greatly appreciated.

    I know this guide is for SSL, however i would be interested to see if this process works.

    Try setting the registry key to 0 as explained, and then run the rwa setup.

  • Robert, 

    Thanks for the reply, I changed the registry key. Had trouble "Restart the Windows Server Domain Name Management service." Not sure if the service ever did actually stop and restart, I kept getting an error "the operation could be completed. Access is Denied," when trying to end the service. Anyways, I ran the setup domain wizard again and same results.
