Cannot Monitor Windows 2003 Small Business Server
Posted on 2004-09-17
I may have done something very bad...
Several weeks ago I uninstalled SQL 2000 from my Windows Small Business Server 2003. At the same time I (for reason I'm now trying to understand) uninstalled anything that looked like it was associated with SQL from Add/Remove Programs. After this stupid action, I could no longer use the Monitoring and Reporting page. When I go to the page, it appears that it hasn't been set up (which it had been previously), but when I click to set up Monitoring and Reporting (the wizard), I get an error:
"The wizard encountered an error while configuring the monitoring features. Run Small Business Server Setup, reinstall the Server Tools component, and then run the Monitoring Configuration Wizard again."
At the time, I also got this error in Event Log:
"#50070: Unable to connect to the database STS_Config on SERVER\SharePoint. Check the database connection information and make sure that the database server is running."
I did the suggested step with no results. I still get the error. I reinstalled SQL 2000, and since then the '#50070' error has been replaced by:
"Could not connect to the monitoring database. This can occur when there are multiple connections to the database. Wait a short period of time, and then try again. If this error persists, run the Monitoring Configuration Wizard, and select Reinstall monitoring features."
I still can't run the Monitoring Configuration Wizard because when I click on it in Monitoring and Reporting, I get the first error above. I've tried installing the tools again, with no luck.
Has anyone had this problem before, or does anyone know how to fix this?
