WSS2.0 Install error

  Asked By: Norma    Date: Apr 26    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1420

When I try to install WSS 2.0, I get this error:

Setup Errors
There are errors in Windows Sharepoint Services setup.
* Create Administration Virtual Server: Cannot open W3SVC service on computer
* IIS must be restarted before the change will take effect. To restart IIS,
open a command prompt window and type iisreset.
* Object reference not set to an instance of an object

I'm installing sharepoint to a new server(B) before in restoring the backup from
server (A). Both servers are running Windows 2003 SP1.
1. copy sts2setup_1033 from server (A) to server (B)
2. On server (B) Start > Run ...in the Open box, entered the following path
with the remotesql flag:
"c:\program files\sts2setup_1033\setupsts.exe" remotesql=yes
3. In the installation UI, select 'Server Farm' and completed the setup.
4. Received above error.

IIS "stopped" during the installed. Issued iisreset...didn't "start" IIS.

Would the quotes (") cause harm?
Should I unistall sharepoint and re-install, but use the command prompt for the
install instead of using the Start>Run option?

Any assistance would greatly be appreciated.

I presume that you are using a network account with access to the
database server. Is that correct?
