MOSS 2007 Service Pack 2/WSS 3.0 Service Pack 2

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

I inherited a SP 2007 small server farm.  I found that MOSS 2007 SP1 is outdated and WSS 3.0 SP1 is also outdated.  I have downloaded both Service Packs.  I have never done an update like this. I need to confirm that I am supposed to run both Service Packs on the SharePoint server.  I also was wondering if anyone knows if any of my settings will change when I run the Service Pack?

I have installed SP before, but I did not have a farm that was so outdated.  I have had to install over 60 Windows/SharePoint updates in the past few days.

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

Office Servers 2007 Service Pack 1 Issues


After we applied Service Pack 1 for MOSS 2007, we are experiencing a lot of issues. One of the major issues is related to the Forms Server using InfoPath 2007 Forms and MOSS 2007.

This occurs after a postback (save, close, cascading dropdowns, etc) are being made through the browser (using infopath) to the Forms Server in MOSS. The infopath form just says "Sending data to the server", with no err

SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 3 (KB955706) update is successful but repeats installin

  Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 3 (KB955706) (update 1 of 1) This update seems to be stuck in a loop of installing, each time it successfull installs acccording to automatic updates. Then says it requires installing again straight away. This has been happening for 10 days now. I have tried a manual update from the website rather than automatic updates, no change. Any ideas why? Have posted in Windows update which is where I think the problem lies but they have suggested I post here also.

Which SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack to Install?

I have Windows 2008 Small Business Server Standard Edition.  When I scan for updates I get two different SQL service packs showing up, with the same KB955706 number.  I'm wondering which I should install, or if both, what order to install them in?  The first one is labeled: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 3 The second one is labeled: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services Service Pack 3 For applications, I have Blackbaud The Financial Edge v7.78 (accounting package for clubs) installed that uses SQL Server 2005 Express Edition for its database engine.  The new upgrade for this software requires SP3 which is why I need to know which service pack to install.  Also, please let me know if there are any tricks to getting the service packs installed on 2008 SBS Standard Edition.  I know sometimes registry settings need to be changed for SQL service packs to be installed properly. Thank you for your help.

SQL Server 2008 R2 Installation and Service Pack 1 Question

I am migrating a SQL 2000 server to a SQL 2008 R2 server (on different physical servers) . When I ordered SQL Server 2008 the volume licensing allowed me to download sql server web 2008, sql server web 2008 R2 and sql server 2008 service pack 1. I don't know why I have three options to download. Don't I just need to just install the sql server 2008 Web R2? Are there any sql 2008 R2 service packs available?

Uable to successfully install SQL Server 2005 (Express Edition) Service Pack 3 (KB955706)

After repeated attempts, I am unable to install the MSSQL Server 2005 (Express Edition) Service Pack 3 (KB955706).  From Live Update, the installation initializes but then reports that it was unable to install.  The first couple of times I received Error Code 0x65B, but that doesn't come up any longer. I have ACT! Database version 2007 (9.0) and it is unable to access the database to open it because it uses the MSSQL??  Also, there used to be an MSSQL icon below in my system tray, but that no longer appears.  When I reboot it will be on briefly, but then goes away.. MS Customer Support has attempted to help (Case ID SRX1135612820) but now tell me that this is beyond their expertise.  They had me try to reload MMSQL 2005 but no change. Please help! Thanks!!  Terry
