I have foolishly volunteered to assess SBS2012 Standard for friends who are considering using it. The challenge I face is that I have a Lab segment behind existing firewall infrastructure that SBS cannot alter, however, I cannot get it to accept manual network configuration (static IP and gateway set to the existing infrastructure).

Has anyone got this to work, there are a variety of inconclusive articles regarding SBS 2008, but nothing for SBS 2012 (or 2011, or whatever they are calling it)

Are you saying you can't get the Windows Server you are testing to accept a manual IP address?

Can you not find it, or you can find it and change it, but the changes don't stick?

Just saw the pic - what happens when you run the Connect To The Internet wizard?

I can apply the static IP details, but SBS cannot make an outbound connection using the config. I have a couple of other test boxes in the segment who make outbound connections with static config fine.

My guess is that the TMG included in SBS prevents all activity until the configuration wizard completes, but as it can't complete it is basically stuck inside itself.

I had the same problem some time ago, when testing with a beta. From memory I had selected to go with the default windows live? remote domain SSL cert but due to the setup SBS couldn't configure the router and didn't progress any further. Unfortunately I didn't perseveres with it as I was only doing a quick recc'y on the product. Would be interested to see how you progress though.

As per the experience above, the wizard runs for about 10 minutes trying to find a router and then gives up.

I've checked on the next firewall up and SBS is not even reaching it. I've tried installing another network adapter and installing RAS (NAT) to see if I could get to the SBS TMG interface, but so far, no luck.

oh no, PEBCAC!

I have two "edge" networks, connected to two different TMG servers, this one is currently switched off!
