Get Machine Status had errors: Error Catalog: Other Error Error Code:-2146233087 Let’s get to troubleshooting this issue.In this particular setup, the customer was migrating from Windows 2003 to Windows SBS 2011 Essentials. Run Tasks  120810.150219.7019: Client Setup: Running Task with Id=Client Deploy. Per other articles and forum posts I read, it was recommended to re-run the wizard a second time. It was also suggested to run the wizard while logged in as a local admin, non domain joined and I got the same results. I then attempted to connect to the new server by doing https://SBS-11E:65515/connect and did not get any certificate errors.I didn’t really care in this case, and proceeded on.I then opened a command prompt on the 2003 server and typed in NET STOP NETLOGON & NET START NETLOGON and pressed enter. I then tried to ping the SBS 2011 Essentials server by FQDN, for example ping SERVER-SBS11E.internaldomain.local which it now was able to resolve.
