SharePoint Configuration wizard failed after reinstall SQL

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 12, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

I had an issue with my SQL and I posted my question here:

http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqldatabaseengine/thread/0d20e84d-c6b7-4826-8386-2457e1e5cce9?prof=required

Now I passed that step and now I need to run the sharepoint wizard, but I get erroe message. The log file is too long to put here.

My problem was I had re install a new instant of SQL and I attached the data bases, now I wan to run the sharepoint wizard again to get the old Central Admin of my PWA,any idea why?

Thanks

failed to create configuration database on Sharepoint 2010 beta install under Windows 7

  
sharepoint configuration wizard at final step issued message as follows:

failed to create the configuration database.

an exception of type system.io.filenotfoundexception ws thrown.  additional exception informaion. could not load file or assemble 'microsoft.identity.model. version=1.0.0.0,culture=neutral, publickeytoken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of it's dependencies. the system cannot find the file specified.

the only option was to 'finish' the wizard and exit without a successful install.

can anyone help me with diagnosing this problem.

i am running windows 7 on a dell machine and installed all the software requirements for sharepoint install. with the exception of a hotfix for sql server which when i followed the lin appeared to be updated to a more recently posted hotfix.  i downloaded this and installed successfully.

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?

Thanks,


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

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?

Workflow "Failed on Start (retrying)" when new item created by BizTalk SharePoint Adapter

  

We've been using the BizTalk SharePoint Adapter to load various different contents into a MOSS 2007 Document Library. The library has a Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007 workflow (sequential workflow created in Designer) which starts automatically when a new item is added to the Document Library. Or, at least, it eventually starts automatically.

 

For some unknown reason--and this is what we're hoping some of you may have some ideas on--the workflow fails to start on the first try, producing the "Failed to Start (retrying)" message. When the timer job comes back the second time, the workflow starts successfully, but this causes us to loose five minutes of potential work time (not to mention making us look bad to the VPs and CTO because they see the failure message).

 

In checking the log, I find the following pair of error messages each time the "Failed to Start (retrying)" status occurs:
