Sharepoint services not created

I have recently installed SBS 2003. When creating the users and computers through the "To Do" list, I am getting a message that the user can be created but that there was a problem setting up sharepoint services for the user.
What could be the cause of this?
Can sharepoint services be set up manually after the wizard has completed?

I created and deleted several users multiple times using the wizard with the same result.

Thanks for the recap and reminder of where we were at...

So, I think your logic is good, except there is one piece of the puzzel that you don't have.  When you delete a user account from Active Directory, it does NOT delete the corresponding SharePoint account.  So you need to go into Companyweb and remove the users manually.

Try this link to go directly to the User Management Page: http://companyweb/_layouts/1033/siteusrs.aspx

Once they are removed from SharePoint you can reapply the templates with the Change User Permissions Wizard again.  Be sure that the Templates are still listed as users in SharePoint though.. I made that mistake at first... deleting the template accounts from SharePoint will make them not work anymore.

It can be set up manually, but you wouldn't want to do that because if there is a problem it should be resolved since there may be other related issues.  What is the EXACT error you are receiving?  You should look in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Small Business Server\Support\add_user_wizard.log.

I just created a new user and it seemed to work fine. No message about sharepoint services.

On the screen just before where the error used to appear the wizard reports that the user (a power user) will have SharePoint access configured for the users through the following site groups: Administrator

Not sure why the site group is Administrator for a power user???

I have several accounts that were created and that had the error during creation.
Should I delete these accounts and try again.
What is the proper way to completely delete a user account?
Should I change the: Logon Name, E-mail Alias, password, first/last name, etc, to something different when creating the new account or should i be able to use the same info?

I'll try to post the error if it comes back again when I re-create these accounts.

First, why are you creating Power Users?  What is their purpose?  I don't really like that template because it has some rather strange settings -- it was designed to be used for only a Manager or two... but i still don't like it.

Anyhow... if you have accounts that were created with an error, just reapply the template by using the Change User Permissions Wizard.  if you still have the error you should delete the account and recreate it.  Using the same name should be fine.

The errors would be listed in the file I referenced above... so you don't have to wait for them to come back up.

Here are a couple of examples from the log file you mentioned. I will take your advice on the Power Users.

Also I discovered something else over the weekend. During OS installation I set up a temporary backup while doing the ToDo list and it was set to back up the entire system to the main partition. Anyway, the main partition was full. I have now moved the backup location to tape and recovered the space. I'm not sure if this is the problem since I believe I attempted to create the accounts before the backup ran for the first time.

I will attempt to reapply the templates.

It looks like it worked on two of the accounts but not on the third.

You can't apply a template to the built-in Administrator account.  Because that account is not in the standard OU.  

But back to SharePoint... did the companyweb install at all?  You can look in IIS Manager to see if the website exists... or just try accessing http://companyweb from your server.

yes, for most users, the companyweb comes up as the default home page in IE. I have successfully added a couple of links and messages

TechSoEasy,

This is similar to a conversation we had earlier this year when I first installed OS. I have included the link:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/SBS_Small_Business_Server/Q_21773256.html

The only similarity I can find/recall is that in both cases I:

1. created the accounts successfully using ToDo list (or maybe some other method on previous install)
2. deleted the accounts for some stupid reason (wanted to change template or computer name or something)
3. created new accounts under the same name and began getting errors about sharepoint services

All I can think of is that I didn't delete the accounts properly and the wizard was unable to re-create the account because it found remnants of an older account with similar/identical resources.

Again, thanks for your patience.

YES, THAT FIXED IT!!!

Thanks for working this out with me. I guess that the sharepoint services aren't integrated into AD very well.

Jeffrey Kane - TechSoEasyPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
It's not about whether they are integrated or not... they actually are.  The issue is that SharePoint tags most every entry with the user who made it.  Removing users can break some of the data within SharePoint... so they make it separate just to be sure you don't mess up anything that relies on a user's info.

Glad you got it fixed though.

Thanks, this worked for me (removing the user from sharepoint via the companyweb users link posted by Jeff).
