SPS Version 2

  Asked By: Lauren    Date: Apr 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 654

couple of weeks ago I asked in list about SPS ver 2.
Question was - does anybody have upgraded SPS1 to SPS2 and what happened? I
ask because this what I was shown by IT guys was confusing, I cannot found
document management any more. Yes, I saw STS document management. But so
clear as it was in SPS - no.

I agree, our IT guys may be did something wrong in installation.

What is Your excperience about SPS2?
Do You find document base, categores, profiles, workflows e.t.c.?

I am stuck in installation  area I mean the configuration database settings
After the installation wizard it opens a webpage
There it ask to configure the database

When I select the create configuration database and give the database name

I installed sps  version 2 with msde option, after that complete installation
it opens a webpage to configure the database

I provided the SPS server name but it gives a error message Invalid login,
after that I gave configure existing database and gave another machine which
was having sql server 2000 as the data source , still it gave me the error
saying database doesn't exist (offline)

I checked the documentation but there is no way to tell me what I need to do

I even installed sql 2000 on the SPS server and try to conjure this but
doesn't works

1. You need to do a clean installation  of Window 2003 (RC2). (e.g.
Format a new hard disk partition and install Window 2003 RC2).

2. Then, add a role (i.e. Add role to install IIS 6.0) since all the
services will not be installed by default by Window 2003 anymore.

3. Remember to include ASP .NET option.

4. Finally, install SPS v2 by default (ie. Using MSDE be default and do
not need to install SQL 2000).

I had to create the aspnet user in the sql as well and assign it as the
owner of the master database and it works with it

No need to format the disk
