Thank you for your update.
From the description, I understand the GPO problem was resolved after
trying the mofcomp commands. However, when we try to reinstall the
monitoring components and Administration component on the SBS server, the
error message "Permissions could not be properly configured for the Fax
Operators security group. Run Setup again and choose to reinstall the
Administration component." is received. I am sorry that know you can not
open Server Management. If I have misunderstood your concern, please feel
free to let me know.
To resolve this issue, make sure that the Network Service account and the
Local Service account is added to the following policy settings on the
o Adjust memory quotas for a process
o Generate security audits
o Log on as a service
o Replace a process level token
o Log on as a batch job
To configure the policy settings for the Network Service account on the
domain controller, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Domain
Controller Security Policy.
2. Expand Local Policies, and then click User Rights Assignment.
The policy settings are displayed in the right pane.
3. Double-click the policy setting that you want to add the Network Service
4. If the Network Service account and the Local service account is not in
the list of users and groups that are assigned to that policy setting,
click Add User or Group.
5. In the Select User or Groups dialog box, type Network Service in the
Enter the object names to select box, and then click OK.
6. Verify that NETWORK SERVICE is displayed in the list of users and groups
that are assigned to that policy setting, and then click OK.
7. Add Local service the same way.
8. Reboot the server.

controller or you receive a "Permissions could not be properly configured

To your another question, we need apply Windows 2003 SP1 service packs
first, then apply other service packs. Please take a look at the following
The whole SBS 2003 SP1 package disks including:
A. Windows Server 2003 SP1
B. Windows SharePoint Services SP1
C. Exchange Server 2003 SP1
D. Outlook 2003 SP1 (applies to each client)
E. Windows XP SP2 (applies to each client)
F. Active Sync 3.8 (applies to each client)
G. SBS 2003 SP1
H. SQL Server 2000 SP4 (Premium only)
I. ISA 2004 (Premium only)
We need apply the A-G service packs one by one and the G: SBS 2003 SP1
should be applied in the end. The H-I service packs can be applied as you
need and there is no order of them.
The premium SP1 disk just has more contents: SQL Server 2000 SP4 and ISA
2004 than that in the standard SP1 disk. What is more, I would like to give
you some information about apply SP1.
