Configuring a Domain Name Issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • After installing WHS I am now trying to get remote access going.  I am hitting a roadblock during the domain configuration step.  I am getting stuck at the Domain Name Setup Wizard.  I do have a Live ID but when I try to login it just hangs there.  Can I set up a domain name going directly to Windows Live and not through the WHS console?

  • Try again later. Windows Live Custom Domains has had issues from time to time, and it sounds like you're seeing one of them.

    Also, there is no way to configure your vanity URL outside of the console.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • Thanks.  I'll keep trying from time to time.

  • I've been trying to get past the same point for more than a week.  How long should I wait?  Every day I've tried several times to get past the Windows Live ID screen but it seems to hang.
