Service Applications not showing in services on server on 2nd server

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have installed a new sharepoint farm. I have added to the sharepoint farm a 2nd server. Everything is working fine for browsing sites via the NLB address. I have created some new service applications - including search and managed meta data.  These work fine on the first server.  They do not appear under services on service in central admin for the 2nd server and therefore cannot be started on that server.  I have also notices that the associated web services do not exist under the web services iis website on the 2nd server. Can anyone provide any guidance as to why the service applications and web services are not available upon the 2nd server? Thanks

Can't install Service Pack 3 for SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services


I just installed a stand-alone SQL Server 2005 reporting services on a 64-bit Server 2008 machine without receiving any errors.  I have not configured reporting services yet, but I'd like to patch it with Service pack 3. However, when I execute Service Pack 3, it won't let me check the box for reporting services.  I've rebooted, etc.  The database is not installed on this server, just reporting services.

I have performed many searches, but I have not seen anyone with a similar problem.  What can I do so that it allows me to check the box during service pack installation?

SQL server 2005 cluster - second node - sql service will not start - node is showing down in cluster


I am tryng to get the second node in a two node cluster to start sql services and come up in the cluster.  The second node was configured and running in a cluster when at some point, the sql service and/or cluster service went down.  Now the node will not start...as in SQL service fails and the system log error is:

"The disk associated with cluster disk resource 'Disk Q:' could not be found. The expected signature of the disk was BF17D33C. If the disk was removed from the server cluster, the resource should be deleted. If the disk was replaced, the resource must be deleted and created again in order to bring the disk online. If the disk has not been removed or replaced, it may be inaccessible at this time because it is reserved by another server cluster node."

and the Application log shows:

Error 2(The system cannot find the file specified.) occurred while opening file 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\DATA\master.mdf' to obtain configuration information at startup. An invalid startup option might have caused the error. Verify your startup options, and correct or remove them if necessary.

I had to edit the startup parameters on the second node because it appears it cannot "see" the original path, which was a network driv

Service Applications missing from SharePoint Server 2010 Installation


Hi Guys, 

I recently completed an in-place upgrade from WSS 3.0 to SharePoint Foundation 2010 to SharePoint Server 2010. While the first half of this migration process seems to have worked from WSS 3.0 to Foundation 2010 the upgrade from Foundation 2010 to Server 2010 has left the installation with only the Foundation level service applications.

If I go to add a new service application the only ones listed are the foundation service applications but if I go to check the current license it confirms the enterprise server edition is installed. I have re-ran the product configuration wizard and if I check the patch status in central administration it confirms that all the enterprise components are installed they just aren't showing up in the service applications listing! 

Any ideas on how I can add these missing services to central administration?






Unable to install SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services Service Pack 4 (KB2463332)



Rookie here. Using SQL for an eBay software program we have been running for two years. There were simple step by step instructions to install -- point being, I really dont understand this stuff.

Running Windows XP SP3.

Automatic Updates is trying to install the version shown in the Title of this message. It fails to install and gives me the error: SQL BPA command line has encountered a problem and needs to close.

I do not know where to access the error log. I will post if someone can tell me the correct one to find. In the following directory, C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\, there are directories for MSSQL.1, MSSQL.2 and MSSQL.3. Two of them show log directories with today's date.

Any and all help is very much appreciated.

Thank you!
