Dear sirs,

My SharePoint Services 3.0 was working fine on Windows 2003 Server R2 Standard. It is a standalone machine not connected to the network.

But SharePoint stops working after I installed Active Directory on this same machine. I did that executing dcpromo tool.

Please, can you help me

Thank you very much,
Marcos Tito.

Marcos,

You will require creating domain accounts and modifying the accounts that SharePoint runs as. Typically best practice is not to run a web application of any sort on the domain controller as you are opening a security hole.

Now, in your case, I would backup my content databases, create two domain accounts (one for core service account and one for search). As an administrator, reinstall the instance of SharePoint, using the two domain accounts per the deployment guide that Microsoft has released. From there, set things up as you previously had, then reattach your content databases.

That should get you back up and running.

Agree, that should work fine. The problem is most likely caused by local accounts used by SharePoint no longer being valid in the domain environment.
