From the FAQ section on here:
"Avoid installing BES on a Microsoft Small Business Server 200x server. There are many complications because SBS is both a Domain Controller and an Exchange Server (even a SQL server in some cases). "

I have had BPS running successfully on our SBS 2003 r2 since the beginning of January. I cannot post links yet, but if you go to del.icio.us/mpeckham and search for bes or select the tag bps you should find some useful info. The only thing that is likely different between my setup and yours is that we are using a full version of SQL on another server. Before I set it up this way, I seem to remember getting the same error message.

As to the faq stating that they don't recommend installing BES on the SBS, I read that too and had to confirm with other Admins that it would work.

Hope this helps and good luck, it is a great product!
