Cannot install Sharepoint Server 2010 "A previous installation has been detected with a license type

  
I'm trying to upgrade to Team Foundation Server 2010 and Project Server 2010. After getting TFS 2010 and Project Server 2007 to work with WSS 3.0, I started upgrade to Project Server 2010 which requires update to Sharepoint Server 2010 Enterprise. I installed pre-requisites and run "stsadm -o preupgradecheck" which passed everything. When I tried to run the installation I get Setup Warning "A previous installation has been detected with a license type that does not match the install in progress". I thought that my trial licence for Project Server 2007 stopped this so I completely uninstalled WSS 3.0 and restarted the server but the installation still stops with Upgrade window. Any ideas?

Failed to change Farm Account in Sharepoint 2010 server, now Central Administration is not accessibl

  
Hello, I have a problem, that I no longer can access Central Administration Website, only the Sharepoint itself. I was running installation of Sharepoint 2010 Server with administrative account ImTheAdmin, who is a Domain Admin in the domain on one of the Windows 2008 R2 member servers. Besides that, I made ImTheAdmin the primary administrator of the Sharepoint. ImTheAdmin became the only user of this Sharepoint 2010 server after installation.  I installed everything on one box with default installation settings. I used builtin SQL server, not Standard or Enterprise. What then happened is: Using ImTheAdmin account, I opened Central Administration Website, and it said, that I need to change the Farm Account, for the account for Farm was the default one (I think it was network service). So I created a regular domain user MYDOMAIN\SharepointFarmAccount. The account name was too long to be as a Windows 2000 name, so it showed there without last 't', e.g. MYDOMAIN\SharepointFarmAccoun. I thought, Windows 2000 is long gone, so I didn't pay much attention, I think everywhere the account SID is important. I don't know if that is the real problem with my failure later, but it might be one of the reasons. I put MYDOMAIN\SharepointFarmAccount down in to the form of Central Administration Website, added the check mark, that it would react to password changes, and pre

Can you install SharePoint 2010 and User PerformancePoint in a single server enviroment?

  
Hi I Installed SharePoint 2010 in a single server farm and I configured a Performance Point service aplication. Whenever I run dashboard designer it seems to work but it eventually crashes. I don´t know if I have any configuration errors. I read this Run the Secure Store Service on a separate application server that is not used for any other service. Create the secure store database on a separate application server running SQL Server. Do not use the same SQL Server installation that contains content databases. Here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee806889.aspx I believe this service is necesary to run connect to data sources does this mean it all cannot be run in the same server.

Cannot Add Second FE Server to SharePoint 2010 Farm

  
Hi folks Well I thought I would add my problem to the others that are also experiencing this issue. I actually reported somthing similar to this forum in Feb 2010 when I was trying the beta version out. I upgraded our WSS farm to SPFS 2010, the upgrade worked, well kinda. Basically our second WFE server would not join the farm after installing the 2010 binaries and runnng the configuration tool and it was complaining with the following error: 07/31/2010 14:35:59  11  INF                              Calling SPFarm.Local and SPServer.Local to get the local farm objects 07/31/2010 14:35:59  11  INF                              SPFarm.Local returned null.  This usually means that the server is not joined.  But, you can delete a server from the configdb without unjoining, which would mean that this machine still thinks it is joined. 07/31/2010 14:35:59  11  INF                              Trying to access th

Purpose of initial "site" in SharePoint Server 2010 Express Install

  
I’m installing Search Server 2010 Express using “Farm” mode. After the SharePoint Configuration Wizard completes, and selecting  the SharePoint config wizard, one needs to create a website. What is that site intended for? Is it for the Search Center itself? (If so, then I better select the Enterprise – “Basic Search Center" template. If it is intended for a "normal" top level site, then I will create a new Search site in its own web app). TIA, Barkingdog  

SharePoint 2010 - The license state for the current server doesn't match the farm's license state.

  
I already have a SharePoint 2010 server built, up and running. Yesterday I built a brand new server Windows 2008 and installed all necessary windows updates. Then I joined the server to the domain where the other SharePoint 2010 box is. Today, I installed all necessary pre-requisites for SharePoint 2010 including the KB971831. After that I installed SharePoint 2010 binaries on the new server. When I run the configuration wizard now, it sees the database server with the configuration database, but will not allow me to join the new server to the farm. I get the following error in the diagnostic logs. Resource retrieved id ConfigurationDatabaseTaskConnectFailConfigDisplayLabel is Failed to connect to the configuration database. 02/18/2010 17:54:12 8 INF Leaving function StringResourceManager.GetResourceString 02/18/2010 17:54:12 8 ERR Failed to connect to the configuration database.   An exception of type System.InvalidOperationException was thrown. Additional exception information: The current server cannot be joined to this farm because the set of installed products does not match the products installed in the farm.   The license state for the current server doesn't match the farm's license state. System.InvalidOperationException: The current server cannot be joined to this farm because the set of installed products does not match the products installed in the farm.

How can I install Features into the Sharepoint 2010 Server Standard after the install?

  

I have installed SharePoint Server 2010 Standard. We are testing the functionality of the new system and what it can do. I got an upgraded copy of the HelpDesk and Knowledge Base Templates (Part of the Fab 40) from http://techsolutions.net/Blog/tabid/65/EntryId/17/Fab-40-Templates-for-MOSS-2010.aspx. They seem to be good, but there is a feature that is in the Server that is not installed that I need to be able to get both of these working.

The feature is: Web Analytics Customize Reports functionality (Display Name: WACustomReports).

I need to be able to get this feature installed and activated so that I can use these 2 templates. Is there someone that can help me with this issue?

NOTE: I have tried to use the command line for SharePoint Power Shell. It is not working. The files that it is looking for are not on the HDD where they should be.


Install SharePoint 2010 in a farm environment

  

Recently for one of my project, I had a requirement to install SharePoint on a farm environment. I had a walkthrough with technet site and completed the installation. I thought share my scenario so that somebody with similar requirement may find this useful.

First of all, I had 2 servers for the implementation. So I have decided to dedicate one server for database and another for Sharepoint installation.

The server names are SP2010_DB (for database) and SPPortal (for sharepoint). Both are joined to the domain. For the sake of this article, I am mentioning the domain as SP2010FARM.

I have used the following user accounts for the installation.

Server roles required

SharePoint 2010 WFE Page Not Opening in a 5 Server SP Farm

  
I have a 5 Server SharePoint 2010 Farm - 2 NLB, 1 Index, 2 Node SQL 2k8 R2 Cluster.
I completed the installation of this and finally when I hit the http://intranet:555 (Intranet being the NLB name) from outside the servers (from a client machine), I got a 404 error. Within the Index Server where the Central Administration is hosted, the URL is opening fine. Withint the 2 NLB machines, the URL shows me a login entry box, but even if you give the right ServiceFarm credentials, it does not open the site, it infact just gives me a blank page (no 404 or access denied page). What do you think I should be done?

Can I install SQL 2008 on a server running SQL 2005 to install Sharepoint 2010 Enterprise (Productio

  

Hi,

Sharepoint 2010 Upgrade Question - A customer is currently running sharepoint 2007 on a 64bit windows 2003 OS with SQL 2005 sp2, they are looking to install/upgrade to Sharepoint 2010 and want to use the current SQL server,for the upgrade a new SharePoint 2010 environment will be built and for a short while they will have two instances of SharePoint running SP2007 and SP2010. The plan is to then manually migrate the data from SP2007 to SP2010 (ENT), the web and application servers will be newly built. From research I think they have three options

1) Upgrade the current SQL 2005(SP2) instance to SQL 2008 R2 standard.

2) Install a new instance of SQL 2008 R2 on the same server and have both SQL 2005 & SQL 2008 running on the same server (Is this an option? Will sharepoint happily run from a SQL server running two SQL instances, do I have to be careful regarding the installation and configuration, could I break the existing sharepoint farm doing this?)

3) Upgrade the current SQL server to SP3 and install a new instance of SQL 2005 SP3 and install SharePoint 2010 Enterprise here, again I have all the questions from point 2 above.

We are thinking of trying option 1, then 2, then 3, and obviously only moving to the next option if we come across a show stopper. H

Specs for a small Sharepoint 2010 farm on a Hyper V virtual server

  

I want to build a small Sharepoint Farm on a hyper v Windows Server 2008 R2 OS.

I want to have the following instances. An App server (with indexing and query) and an SQL server.

I need to scope out a server which will accommodate this development environment and ultimately scale out to include additional virtual instances.

What would the minimum memory and CPU requirements be?

Why I can't install Project Server 2010 on my SharePoint 2010 Server?

  

I recently installed on my server SharePoint 2010, SQL Server 2008 is on another box and all seems to work fine, except that when I try to install Project Server 2010 it keeps telling me that I need ton install SP 2010.

I already checked that the required edition of SP is the Enterprise, as far as I remember that is the edition I activated because I used the Product Key for the  "SharePoint Server 2010 For Internet Sites Enterprise", but to double check this (and correct it if I am wrong I went to the 'Convert License Type' page and not only it does NOT show what my current license is (information is empty), but also the box to type a new Key is disabled, so I am not allowed to try to change the one used.

Can anybody tell me what is going wrong?


DNS Server to install Sharepoint 2010

  

do I need to install/add role of DNS Server on windows server 2008 to install sharepoint 2010. Can someone guide me to step by step guide to install Sharepoint 2010?


Want to install Sharepoint 2010 and RDS Gateway on same server, multiple questions

  

Background:  SMB environment, only have 4 servers.  Want to run SharePoint 2010 Foundation and RDS Web Access and RDS Gateway on same 08R2 server.

1. which one to install first, WSS or RDS?  Either one will install IIS and build and bind to the default website, so does it really matter which one goes first?  I seem to remember on old server installing TS WebApp and Gateway first, then WSS3, and TS WebAccess stopping until I added the host header to WSS.

2.  how to enable HTTPS access to both WSS and RDS WebAcess/Gateway?  this failed on a previous server, which I am now migrating to new hardware/OS.  RDS Web Access and Gateway use the default website.  I can make WSS work http with a host header, but not https.  on old server everytime I enabled an https AAM for my WSS site it stopped the TS Gateway service, but I only had one NIC on that server at the time.  My new server has four NIC's.  So, would a valid solution be to restrict the default website (RDS Web Access and Gateway) binding in IIS to one NIC and then restrict the WSS site to another?  I seem to remember adding a NIC to the old server and trying to change the default site binding from "all unassigned" to just one IP and TS Gateway stopped, but I could be imagining that, it's been a while.

Rename SharePoint 2010 Farm server

  

We have a 2 server farm--SharePoint 2010 Farm server and SQL 2008 server.  Unfortunately, the SP 2010 farm server needs to be renamed.  We're not yet a production environment, but I do have some sites created.  I'd rather not have to totally "reinvent the wheel".  What's the "best practice" for this type of situation?  Disconnect SP 2010 server from the config database first, then rename the SP 2010 server through Control Panel, reboot, and then reconnect to the database? If I do this, how will I connect to the CA?  I don't want to miss any crucial steps! 


Dedicated Index Server in a SharePoint 2010 Server Farm

  

Hi,

We want to have a dedicated Index server in our Sharepoint 2010 Farm and we have have Query roles on our WFE server itself.

I came across this - http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointadmin/thread/f775c95d-4bec-450d-a56c-5114a0f52c0a in which it is written: " By installing WFE on Dedicated index server in SP2007 Farm, you will have benefits"

But as per my understanding , in Sharepoint 2010 Farm Setup, we dont need install WFE role on index server as index server will have to propogate index to query server and we cant avoid any network traffic.

Please validate my understanding and if you have any recommnedations for setting dedicated Index server in SP2010 Farm , please suggest .

Thanks .

Constant 'server restart pending' whenever I try to install Sharepoint Server 2010 Beta

  

I've installed all the prerequisites just fine, but every time I run the main installation program it tells me:

"Setup is unable to proceed due to the following error(s):

A system restart from a previous installation or update is pending. Restart your computer and run setup to continue."

After restarting, and doing nothing else, I run the setup again to get the same result.  There are no pending restarts, Server Manager itself normally complains if there is a restart pending, so I don't know where it is getting this from.

THe next thing I will try is to give it a little more RAM in case it makes a difference; the virtual machine currently has 4GB overall and has a few other minor roles as well.  But it would make sense for the installation program to say that instead of telling me it's a reboot.

Thanks
