Issue with Monitor and Reporting with Small Business Service

MSDE 2000 Service Pack 4 did not install.  For additional instructions, see the SQL Server 2000 Service Pack Web site at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=46241.

I previously had to uninstall and reinstall companyweb and share point per TechSoEasy's instructions.  That worked.  I have reinstalled monitor but am receiving the above error and it still doesn' work.

Thanks
Eric

Who's instructions did you follow to reinstall monitoring?  :-)

Did you reapply MSDE SP4 from the SBS SP1 disks?

These instructions were written before SP1, so you would have to add the reapplication of MSDE SP4 and SBS SP1 to the end of them:  http://msmvps.com/blogs/bradley/archive/2005/08/19/63452.aspx

Jeff, I have reinstalled per the links instructions.  I believe things are working, but I am getting 'The page cannot be found' screen when I got to the Monitoring and Reporting link from the Server Management home page.

Since the SBS came pre-installed on the server, I don't have SP1 on disk, and do I need to reapply MSDE SP4 and SBS SP1?

Thanks 4 your help!

Yes, if the SBSMONITORING was already upgraded to SP4, then the database on your server won't be able to be recognized until you update it's MSDE instance to SP4.  Also a good idea to reapply SBS SP1.

You can just download the Service Packs from this site:  http://download.microsoft.com/download/e/0/f/e0fee8ce-768d-41c0-8871-9bc48e0b3fc3/ToDownLoadFilesandReadInstructions.htm

Jeff, I found MSDE SP4 on the server, but when I try to install it I get the following message.

A strong SA password is required for security reasons.
Please use SAPWD switch to supply the same. Refer to
readme for more details.  Setup will now exit.

I looked for instructions on how to set/change the sa password but none of the instructions referred to SBS.

Ideas?

Jeff,

Figured out what I was doing wrong with the SA password issue.

But now I am trying to install SP1 and I am getting an error regarding installing XP SP2 client deployment package.

Do I really have to do all 5 of these steps?

Only if you want your server to be in working order.

Jeff,

I have complete all of the steps, in order, outlined the link above, but I am still not able to few the Monitoring and Reporting screen.  And now the company web will not come back up.

Do I need to got through the process of removing and reinstalling sharepoint and company web again?

I appreciate all of your help.

Thanks

This is a quote from the fifth page of the article at http://sbsurl.com/sp1

After SBS 2003 SP1 installation, you can uninstall the Companyweb or the Monitoring component, however, when reinstalling the components through 'SBS Integrated Setup', you are prompted to insert the CD 3
Insert Windows Small Business Server 2003 Disc 3 or point to location where Windows Small Business Server Setup files may be found. However, after inserting the original SBS CD3 and clicking OK, the wizard then gives the following error: The drive contains a disc for Windows Small Business Server 2003 with no service packs.  When the prompt appears, insert a disc for Windows Small Business Server 2003 with Service Pack 1. Since the CD3 for SBS SP1 doesn't include the Monitoring/Companyweb part, the installation cannot proceed. The reason for this behaviour is that SP1 has updated the Intranet component. Extract the SBS SP1 installation folders, then point the SBS Integrated setup program to the folder for the 'SP1 CD3' contents. The extraction process is listed below, please follow the exact steps or the extracted files will be removed.

Start a cmd prompt and change directory to the SP1 download folder (or the SBS03_SP1 folder on PKG_CD2).
Then key 'SBS2003-KB885918-SP1-X86-ENU.EXE /?', the installer extracts files into a guid-like folder name like C:\b5469c25ed0a876e198de1b10efc.

Meanwhile, the help message box is displayed. Do not click OK, or the GUID-like folder will vanish.
Instead, we go to 'Task Manager', end the process 'SBS2003-KB885918-SP1-X86-ENU.EXE' first, then, end the 'update.exe' process. By doing this, the install folder will remain on your hard disk. Note that you need to end these 2 process in turn.

Now go the download or CD folder which contains SBS2003-KB891193-X86-ENU.EXE. Open up a command console and issue 'SBS2003-KB891193-X86-ENU.EXE /?'.

The files will be extracted to another GUID-like folder and the Help window comes up. Again, we will not click OK on the Help window.

Go to 'Task Manager', and then end the process 'SBS2003-KB891193-X86-ENU.EXE' and 'update.exe' in turn. That will end the install process without cleaning up the extracted files.

Run the SBS Integrated setup, and when the setup program prompts for the CD3, point it to the GUID folder created above.

If the first folder doesn't have what the setup program wants, point to the second folder.
