Try running a repair from Sharepoint install, this will preserve the content

 
Answer #3    Answered By: Meenakshi Khochar     Answered On: Sep 28

I had such a problem, but not the repair didn't do nothing - more than that, i
had to reinstall windows  to get SPS working on this server.

Answer #6    Answered By: Beatrice Serrano     Answered On: Sep 28

I had encounter these error  message from events log, after I install SPS
SP1.
All workspace and SharePoint Portal Server had "add virtual  root"
errors.
The system  then also not upgrade to SP1, as I check all the function and
code under Portal/resources.
I guess that is because the problem of SP1 coexist with Exchange 2000,
or Domain Controller, but I am not sure.
Readme of SP1 mentioned that not support  to work with Exchange 2000, so
I then reinstall  SPS + SP1.

 
Answer #7    Answered By: Maya Lewis     Answered On: Sep 28

But i have the following configuration
for my SPS.

1. I have installed SPS 2001 WITHOUT SP1.
2. I have NOT installed SPS 2001 on the machine which is already
running a MS Exchange 2000 or MS SQL Server.
3. The OS of my machine is WINDOWS 2000 Advanced Server with service
pack 2.
4. Also all my services are running properly.
5. IIS is running propperly.
6. I had created workspaces some days back and suddenly i started
getting this problem.
7. I mapped the M: drive and could see the workspaces along with all
the folders in the "applications" folder and last but not the least.
7. i am still at loss to comprehend the error  messages that i got in
the event viewer.

Any help will be highly helpful.
I don't want to uninstall SPPS, format machine, perform install and
so on.
Please save me from this grueling procedure if possible

 
Answer #8    Answered By: Paola Mcmahon     Answered On: Sep 28

IS the Microsoft Exchange Store running ?

Try to map m: drive

net use m: \\.\backofficestorage\localhost
<file://\\.\backofficestorage\localhost>

and see if you can browse data in there ?

 
Answer #9    Answered By: Justin Mckee     Answered On: Sep 28

The error  messages are to be considered benign. You will even find  that on
the MS Website.

Are you facing any problems  with your workspace??
