Error when installing SQL server 200 on SBS 2003 in Windows Small Business Server 2003

Post by Alambik » Fri, 21 Oct 2005 01:27:40


Hi,
I am trying to install SQL 2000 sevrer on my SBS 2003 server (I own the SBS
2003 server Premium).
I installed the OS lately and made all the Microsoft update.
I am now trying to install the SQL 2000 server and get this error message:
(It is the english translation of what I get on my screen)

Error message: "A previous installation program created operation files
waiting for Installtion on your computer. You have to reboot it before
executing the installation."

Of course I rebooted my server, but nothing happened.

Any idea of what to do ?
Thank you for your help

Did you try installing again after the reboot? Was there an error code
listed?

From KB Article 257716:

Q. What should I do if the installation of SQL Server 2000 is unsuccessful?

A. If you have an unsuccessful installation, you can examine two files to
help determine what went wrong. The Sqlstp.log file, which is located in the
Windows directory, gives detailed information on what setup is doing and
contains all errors encountered during setup. Reviewing this file will give
you a better understanding of where setup fails and why.

During the configuration portion of setup, SQL Server setup runs an
application called Cnfgsvr.exe to configure the SQL Server. This application
starts SQL Server, connects to it, and then runs the initial installation
scripts. Any error encountered during this process is also written to the
Sqlstp.log file; however, you should also review the SQL Server error log,
named "Errorlog" with no file extension, located by default in the Program
Files\Microsoft SQL Server\Mssql\Log directory. This error log contains
errors that SQL Server encounters when setup attempts to start SQL Server,
which may provide further insight into the failure.

If you cannot determine the cause of the Setup failure, save the two files
just mentioned and call Microsoft Product Support Services (PSS) to speak to
a SQL Server Support Professional who will help you to resolve your problem.
Note that when the Setup application fails, it rolls back all changes to the
file system, which includes removing any copied files and changes that were
made to the registry.

Yes I tried to reinstall after reboot.
I found the Sqlstp.log file, but am not able to understand it.
If someone has an idea...

What were the last few successful entries? Do you have an installation that
WAS successful that you can compare it to?

'm sure one of the MS guys will jump in here somewhere and give you more
than I can. Can you remove the Symantic product as a test?
