I Continually get this error after attempted install.
“An error occurred while creating distribution groups.
Open Active Directory Users and Computers, and manually
create a test distribution group to verify that Active
Directory is running. Rerun Setup.”
I Create the test distribution group without issue, but
after reruning setup Same error occurs.

Ray-ism solution:

Register wizchain.dll before running setup again
   regsvr32 “C:\Program Files\Windows for Small Business Server\Administration\wizchain.dll”

    I have the same problem since i installed SBS 2003 (2 month ago) and can’t find out why. The above solution does not help (me). Installing Exchange Service Pack doesn’t change anything.

    Maybe it is because i upgraded my old NT server to W2K and then migrated the users from my W2K server to the SBS2003 server … don’t know…

    Any idea greatly apreciated… getting mad ….

    btw: if i try to launch SystemSA it always logs event 9098: can’t read config from AD 0xc004038a.

    IStore doesn’t even start …. also some AD issues. The Computer is in Domain Controllers container and the Administrator account and the exchange accounts are in the USER container … only normal users are under mybusiness containers …

    tried also to reprep forest and domain … works but doesn’t solve problems ..
