    Windows 7 joining SBS 2003 R2 domain

    I'm having an issue with connectcomputer and joining a Windows 7 Ultimate PC
    to our SBS 2003 R2 domain. When I attempt to join I get the following error:

    "An error occurred while trying to copy the Client Setup files. Check the
    following, and then try again:

    If you use a public proxy server to browse the Internet, clear the Internet
    Explorer connection setting for using a proxy server. To do this, from the
    Tools menu, click Internet Options, click the Connections tab, click LAN
    settings button, and then clear the check box in Proxy Server.

    If you on not have a public proxy configured for Internet Explorer, then
    your network administrator must reinstall the Client Deployment component on
    the server. To do this, from Add or Remove Programs, run Windows Small
    Business Server Setup in maintenance mode, and then run Client Setup again."

    I don't run any sort of proxy and I have tried the suggestion for
    reinstalling the client deployment component with no luck. I have also
    confirmed that KB926505 is installed and that connectcomputer is not setup
    for SSL.

    I know I can join the domain manually, but I'd really prefer to do it the
    way it was designed to be done so nothing gets missed.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Are you using a profile that has local Administrator rights on the PC?

    Hello Casey,

    Thanks for your post and Russ' input.

    Besides confirming the user account that should has local administrator right, please also ensure the Windows 7 client's DNS is pointing to SBS internal IP address. Based on
    my research, this error message may occur if SSL is enabled on ConnectComputer virtual directory in IIS. By default SSL is disabled on ConnectComputer virtual directory.

    I noticed that you said "KB926505 is installed and that connectcomputer is not setup for SSL." I still would like to suggest you double confirm it. Please follow the steps below to
    verify it:

    1. Open IIS Manager.
    2. Expand SBSSERVER\Web Sites\Default Web Site\ConnectComputer.
    3. Right click ConnectComputer and select Properties.
    4. Switch to "Directory Security" tab and click Edit under "Secure communications".
    5. Make sure the option "Require secure channel (SSL)" is unchecked and click OK.
    6. Click OK.
    7. Run the command: iisreset.

    Then, run the connectcomputer wizard again(put http://MYSERVER/connectcomputer in IE) on the Windows 7 laptop to check the result.

    For more information, please refer to the following article:

    Default settings of 'Default Website', Virtual Directories under Default Website and Companyweb on a SBS 2003 Server

    Hope this helps.
