SPS 2001 and SPS 2003 coexistence

  Asked By: Rohit    Date: Oct 10    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1042

I've got a testing server with two partition one with Windows 2000 server and
Sharepoint 2001 and the other with Windows 2003 and Sharepoint 2003. After
installing and configuring SPS 2003, I cannot configure SPS 2001 anymore. For
example, while trying to create a workspace I got the following error:
Multiple-step OLE DB operation generated errors. Check each OLE DB status value,
if available. No work was done.
Any idea on how to resolve this error.

I know that, that's why I made two partion on my disk, the one with SPS 2001 has
Windows 2000 server installed on.

It's likely that one installation or the other has upgraded (stomped on) an
OLE DB or WebDAV provider in the other partition's X:\Program Files\Common
Files folder.

The only reliable way to host 2 different server configurations on the same
hardware is to use VMWare or similar "virtual PC" software.

If you end up going that route (and I'd suggest it, I do this every day), there
is a trial version of VirtualPC (Microsoft's VMWare competitor) available from
http://www.microsoft.com/virtualpc/ - this is what the SharePoint demo and test
teams are using where seperqate machines are not an option.
