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

Crawling MOSS2007 from SP2010 gives a STS2S error

Hi all, We have a MOSS2007 farm and our new SharePoint 2010 intranet needs to crawl the MOSS2007 farm. A crawl test with our MOSS2007 test environment succeeded (after opening the STS3s TCP Port on the firewall), but the same crawl test on production gives me an STS2s error message! Isn't STS2s from WSS2.0 / SharePoint 2003 ? Why does a (clean) installation of MOSS2007 give me this STS2s error message? Now, before I also open the Firewall for this STS2s protocol, I'd like to know where this comes from... grtz, Octavie

Error configuration Wizard WSS3 "The Language is not supported on teh server"

The following error happens during step 2 of the Configuration Wizard.

****** Error MSG from log******
  Task configdb has failed with an unknown exception
Exception: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: The language is not supported on the server. ---> System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x8102005E): The language is not supported on the server.


If I start the Wizard again I now get:
Exception: System.InvalidOperationException: Windows SharePoint Services configuration infrastructure is not initialized.  You must wait until completion before joining another server to the farm.

If I delete the databases and start again I get the first error msg again. 
I have uninstalled and reinstalled WSS3  SP2 numerous times.
The DBServer is the same machine.

TFS 2010 RC is also running on this server.

Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.

Installation of Sharepoint 2007 Service pack 2 fails on Step 8 of Sharepoint Configuration Wizard


Here's the deal:-

Our test environment consists of one SQL Server 2005 machine, 1 Domain Controller and 1 Windows 2008 R2 server with Sharepoint 2007 and Project 2007 installed.

We wanted to test the installation of Sharepoint 2007 Service Pack 2 in our test environment. I followed the instructions available from Technet to install both the WSS 3.0 SP2 and MOSS 2007 SP2 http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd637740(office.12).aspx BUT the last part of the Sharepoint Configuration Wizard failed with the following error:-


SQL Database 'ProjectServer_Published' on SQL Server instance 'SPDatabaseServiceInstance'

not found. Additional error information from SQL

Server is included below.


Cannot open database "ProjectServer_Published" requested by the login.

The login failed.

Login failed for user 'domain\FarmAdmin'.

The weird thing is my database is called 'MTL_Project_Published'

So it looks like it's looking for the old project databases.

Has anyone encountered this issue before when installing the service pack 2 of Sharepoint 2007 in their environment?


I have tried all the other solutions posted on the Internet such as running the upgrade via the command prompt, cleari

Execute SQL task and Save Package Configuration wizard


Hello Experts,

I am a great fan of using Package configuration in SSIS to ease migration. I am stumped when it comes to sql execute task. We have few execute sql task that requires selecting/updating across mutliple databases in the query. Currently, I am using 4 part name(server.database.schema.table) in query. Doesn't this actualy against theme of using package configuration in SSIS. If I hard code server and database name, I will have to edit each SSIS package post migration to production.

What options do I have? Can you please help this rookie?




SP2010 Configuration Error: MicroSoft.SharePoint.SPException Language Not Supported
