Problem installing SPS2003

  Asked By: Bhairavi    Date: Sep 11    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 838

We've been having a number of problems getting Sharepoint Portal
server installed successfully. The first problem we
encountered was an error message when creating the configuration
database. We've applied SP3 to SQL 2000. Changing the default
database name allowed us to
successfully create a database and get past the error.
Next the create portal site process failed. The following is the
tail end of the log file:

426a676b20fc' in configuration database.

The log files is telling you that the database already exists and it
cannot create it. I'd imagine this is the same problem  you had creating
the configuration database.

Change the name of the profile database you are creating.

Here is the relevant information from your log.
================

Cannot create file 'C:\Program
Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\data\Customer1_PROF.mdf' because it
already exists. CREATE DATABASE failed. Some file names listed could
not be created.
