For several months, I haven't been able to use the remote access features of WHS v1 because the ISP in my new home provided a router with slightly-broken firmware. Today, I was finally able to upgrade the firmware and start configuring the remote access features again. (In other words, they worked before, but with a different ISP in a different state with a different router.)
When I try to set up my custom domain name, I'm prompted for my Live ID and password. (I've confirmed that they work at live.com) When I click "Next", I get the following message:
Domain Name Setup Failed
The following error occurred during Domain Name Setup:
Unknown error (0x80048051) 80048051
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to proceed? I've rebooted the server, but the problem still remains. The only references I can find to that error number pertain to the Outlook Connector for Hotmail.
I've since verified that I can reach my Windows Home Server remotely using my router's external IP address. But I still can't configure the domain name. I really just want to get the domain name back to what it used to be before I moved and switched ISPs.
For what it's worth, here are the contents of the ddns log from an attempt to set up my domain name:

Doing web searches on "Could not open PPEnv key" and "Failed to LogonIdentityEx" weren't very helpful.
