I'm having isues creating a brand new SharePoint 2007 farm that I've never encountered before. I'm installing a slipstream SharePoint 2007 EE with SP2, Infrastrucutre Updates and Dec 09 cumulative patchs (version 12.0.6524)
I didn't have any issues or errors during the installation or during the configuration wizard but once I started to configure the farm, things just don't seem right.
For example, if I try to start the Server Search Service, I'll get the error: An unhandled exception occurred in the user interface.Exception Information: Could not connect to the search administration Web service on server CDC-SPI-P01 because the web server
is not running. I'll get this until I cycle both IIS and SPTimerv3 on both the Indexer and the Central Admin server.
Also when I try to stop/start the timer server, it will hang on stopping and has to be manually killed.
The last thing I noticed (and this might be the root cause) is that if I go to the Timer Job Status page, I'll get : There are no items to show in this view. even though jobs should have been run. If I look at jobs in the definition page, even jobs
that are suppose to run every minute have 'n/a' next to their last run time.
Has anyone else seen something like this? I've used these binaries before so I know they're good but I am willing to do a complete uninstall/reinstall if its warranted.
