SPS 2003 installation on SQL Server 2005 express

  Asked By: Nicholas    Date: Aug 31    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1819

I have tried this installation several times, and still end up with the same results. Whenever I create a new portal, the creation fails at about 52% complete. Is there a difference in configuration between SQL 2000 and SQL 2005? When I use SQL 2000 I have no problems, and I believe I am missing a detail somewhere. Below is the portion of the creation log where the install fails.

SQL Server 2005 or SQL Express? Your subject said Express, but inline you only said SQL 2005.

I don’t think you’ll be able to use SQL Express with SPS 2003.

Sorry, it’s SQL 2005 Express...................

 
Answer #3    Answered By: Cassidy Sharpe     Answered On: Aug 31

I’m 90% sure that you can’t use SQL Express for SPS 2003… only SQL 2005 (and only if you have SPS2003 SP2 installed).

 
Answer #4    Answered By: Damon Garner     Answered On: Aug 31

You were 100% correct. I switched to SQL 2000 with SP3a, and no problems. I will try using SQL 2005 another time, but will save that for a rainy day.

I did this about two months ago for a project that needed SQL Server
2005 for its improved BI capabilities, but was also going to use
SharePoint 2003. Rather than have two separate database installations
(2005 for BI and a separate 2000 SP3a just for SharePoint), I found a
document online that walks through a somewhat odd procedure:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/917446 .

Basically, you have to install SPS 2003 but, in the middle of the
installation process, before you allow the creation of a content
database, you have to stop, install Service Pack 2 for both WSS and
SPS (in that order), and then continue with the installation.

Evidently, if you don't install the Service Packs in time you'll fail
when creating the content database.

For what it's worth, I haven't had any problems so far with using the
same SQL Server 2005 installation  for both SharePoint content
databases and Analysis Services/Reporting Services. The two are
unrelated, so I wouldn't expect problems, but you never know until you
try.

I was surprised to find the BI tools relatively easy to pick up (I
admit I did have an excellent consultant helping me), although the the
Reporting Services Web Parts weren't very good. It seems that Report
View Web Part just loads a report page into a Page View Web Part. I
could never get the graphs in a report rendered in a usable way.

There’s nothing wrong with using SQL Server 2005… but remember there are two very distinct products:

- SQL Server 2005

- SQL Express 2005

The former is the next version of SQL Server 2000. The latter is the next version (kinda… don’t jump on my back everyone, just saying conceptually) of MSDE. Your initial post said you were using Express in the subject line, but the body of the question wasn’t specific to the flavor. I’m just assuming you are still trying to use Express, and that is what I’m saying it’s supported.

WSS v2 SP2 and SPS 2003 SP2 will DEINFATELY work with SQL Server 2005 (that’s one of the big things SP2 brought us), I just don’t think they will work with SQL Express 2005.

 
Answer #7    Answered By: Freddy Heath     Answered On: Aug 31

Last night I installed SPS2003 sp2, and then installed SQL Server 2005. No problems with SQL 2005, and the creation of the portal.

 
Didn't find what you were looking for? Find more on SPS 2003 installation on SQL Server 2005 express Or get search suggestion and latest updates.
