This is apparently a very common error message, as I see numerous posts about it on these forums. Unfortunately, none of the solutions have worked for me. So I'm hoping somebody knows what is happening in my case.
CURRENT FARM (all in same domain):
Server Web3, Windows Server 2003 R2 (x86) <- WFE, WSS 3.0, SP2
Server Web4, Windows Server 2003 R2 (x86) <- WFE, WSS 3.0, SP2 (also Central Admin host)
Server SQL2, Windows Server 2003 R2 (x64) <- Database server for WSS installation (SQL 2008)
Server SQL5, Windows Server 2008 R2 (x64) <- New reporting server (SQL 2008), WSS 3.0 SP2 - unjoined from farm
- Reporting server database is configured in Sharepoint integrated mode.
- All WSS servers are at SP2. I have double, triple, and quadruple checked this. Build on all three servers is 12.0.6425.1000 (as retrieved from Add/Remove Programs and Programs and Features, respectively.)
- No additional hotfixes were applied after SP2.
When trying to join my new server (SQL5) to the existing farm using the configuration wizard, I get the following error...
10/11/2010 19:21:16 8 ERR Task configdb has failed with an unknown exception
