Sharepoint 2010 - Error while running Configuration wizard for SP 2010 server farm

  
Hi All,

I am trying to set up a SP 2010 farm. I have windows server 2008 R2 installed and was able to install SP 2010 successfully. However when I ran the Sp 2010 Products and configuration wizard I am getting the following error at Step 3.

 Failed to create the configuration database.
An exception of type System.Collections.Generic.KeyNotFoundException was thrown.  Additional exception information: The given key was not present in the dictionary.
System.Collections.Generic.KeyNotFoundException: The given key was not present in the dictionary.
   at System.ThrowHelper.ThrowKeyNotFoundException()
   at System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary`2.get_Item(TKey key)

I have installed all the prerequisites and I am on Microsoft Geneva Framework 1.0.30624.0 . I saw on a blog that Microsoft Geneve Framework beta 2 will actually cause the above problem. However I encountered the error with Beta 1 version as well.

Any ideas why this is happening?

Can the cumulative updates be installed during the 2010 upgrade before the configuration wizard is r

  
For an in-place upgrade of MOSS 2007 Enterprise to SharePoint 2010 Enterprise done by running the installation package, cancelling out of running the configuration wizard, installing all of the cumulative updates, and then run the configuration wizard one time? The "Understanding Updates for SharePoint" white paper states: It is possible to successfully install service packs, hotfixes, and language packs and their updates all at the same time, and only run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard one time. However, the environment will not be accessible between installing the first update and the final update and running the configuration wizard. It would be nice if this also applied to the 2010 upgrade to say on some machine time. Thanks!Eric

SharePoint Configuration wizard failed after reinstall SQL

Adding an SP 2010 server to an existing farm. "Failed to connect to the configuration database." dur

  

I have an existing sp 2010 enterprise server hosting websites and central administration.  I have a seperate sql 2008 r2 server holding the databases.  My goal is to setup another sp 2010 enterprise server to provide redundancy for the websites and central admin.  I believe I am able to accomplish this by adding another web front end to the farm.  On the second server, I install sp 2010, run the config wizard and connect to the config database located on the sql server, however, I am interrupted at step 3 when I am notified of the following:

Failed to connect to the configuration database.
An exception of type System.InvalidOperationException was thrown.  Additional exception information: There was an error encrypting or decrypting credentials. Either a credential update is currently being performed, or you must update the farm account credentials on this server before you can perform this task.

SharePoint 2010 - Error when running the wizard after June CU

  

When I'm running the wizard it will close with the following message:

Keyword not supported: 'failover partner'

The Farm is using SQL Mirroring, which works perfectly. It seems like that the June CU for SharePoint 2010 doesn't know how to handle this.

I think that my only option is to stop the mirroring on the SQL server, but SharePoint will still be knowing the failover partner. I've looked on the internet to remove the failoverpartner within SharePoint via a PowerShell scrit, but i haven't been able to find one.

Are there more people having this situation or is there someone with a great solution? :)
