Early prompt for Server name during install (setup won't take given name) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Just installed WHS yesterday, using DVD created from ISO current EVAL download, early during install was prompted for the Server name.  It wouldn't take any name I gave it, system was connected to network, kept saying name is already in use, select another, finally I gave it a name with all numbers (11245) it liked that and continued.  Noticed later following reboots it asked for server name again and took the name I gave it.  Early during install, it wouldn't proceed until it got a server name it liked/thought wasn't in use.  I was using typical server type names (no illegal characters etc) that would have been unique.  Currently server is named   MarkHome.
