Running latest Storage Manager in an AD environment.

There are 2 DC in the domain, (windows server 2003 r2 enterprise edition). One is the engine server and both have the event monitore service installed.
Engine server is xeon 1.8ghz with 1gb ram
Event monitor server is dual core 1.8ghz with 1gb ram

When logging in with NSMAdmin the interface reports that it is not accepting new events nor processing events. It is impossible to have it start accepting events or start processing events. It just turns back to off again.

The domain is in native 2003 mode but the forest is in windows 2000 mode.
I know that it's a requirement that the domain is native 2003 or native 2000 mode. What about the forest??
