MOSS 2007 config error - System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException

  Asked By: Hiral    Date: Jul 21    Category: MOSS    Views: 2485

Does anybody know if a compressed drive would keep the MOSS 2007
configuration wizard from completing successfully?

I got this error:

"Failed to create the configuration database.

An exception of the type System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException was thrown.
Additional exception information: The file "C:\Program Files\Microsoft
SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\DATA\SharePoint_Config.mdf" is compressed but
does not reside in a read-only database or filegroup. The file must be
decompressed. CREATE DATABASE failed. Some file names listed could not
be created. Check related errors."

Then it points to a log file.

Compression was a problem for WSS v2 databases. Looks like it might
still be a problem in WSS v3.

Nver put a database on a compressed drive - it'll murder it
(even if it did work) as it has to uncompress to read everything.

Ya - wasn't my choice. And now, we're starting over as the drive is
completely corrupted.
