Sharepoint Install failed with SBS r2

Using new R2 media DVD from M$ action pack.

I'd done the migration successfully, and was about to migrate my data and got the new R2 media with my maps.

Installed SBS again, redid the swing.

However, on completing the SBS install, the installation of sharepoint doesn't work.

I get a warning in the app event log which says:

Event Type:      Warning
Event Source:      MsiInstaller
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      1015
Date:            28/10/2006

Description:
Failed to connect to server. Error: 0x800401F0

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.


In the errorlog.txt  the last entry is:

[10/28/06,15:04:32] Intranet: [2] _SBSDnsCreateCNAMERecord failed in CClientX::DoInstall  hr=  [800725ed]

I used the M$ KB article 897877 to completing remove sharepoint and reinstall it and get the same error.

The sharepoint msde instance installs and is running.

Sharepoint Central Administration Website is created

Companyweb website is not created in IIS.
Companyweb folder is created in inetpub, but is empty.

When I open http://companyweb I get the intro page, but when I click on the "go to my company intranet site" link, nothing happens.

stsadminapppool is created in IIS.

The server is running under vmware, but this shouldn't have any impact on the install. The previous install (not R2) worked fine.

I've googled the error messages and found nothing. The only thing unique about this install is the swing migration (which went smooth as).

Any ideas?

Well, http://companyweb should NOT open "the intro page".  It's supposed to open the Companyweb SharePoint page.

The error seems quite clear to me though, that the CName Record was not created in your DNS.  I'm not sure why that happened, but try just entering it manually and see if that fixes your problem.

Open your DNS Admin > SERVER > Forward Lookup Zones > Domain.local.  

There needs to be an Alias (CNAME) record listed here for companyweb that looks like this:

companyweb                          Alias (CNAME)                 server.domain.local.


So, if there isn't, right click in that pane, and select New Alias.  Put companyweb in the top box and  server.domain.local. (using your real info) in the lower box -- including the trailing period.

That should fix the problem for you.  But perhaps this Alias wasn't able to be added because permissions are wrong on the DNS server?  To check this, in DNS Admin, right click on the Server and select Properties > Security.  Make sure that SYSTEM and Domain Admins have full control.  If SYSTEM or Domain Admins are not listed, click the Advanced Button and then click the DEFAULT button to restore Default Permissions settings.

Jeff,

companyweb is in the dns.
Problem is the website doesn't get setup. No companyweb website in IIS and no files in the c:\inetpub\companyweb folder.

Permissions are all OK with DNS. These were all imported from my old servers AD which worked fine. I suspect it is an issue with the R2 install CD.

JJ

FYI company web gets the default page in IIS (because the companyweb website is not setup, so it opens the default page.

I called M$ support.

Turned out the install was failing because I had an A record pointing companyweb to the sbs server, and the install failed on the creation of the cname record and just stopped.

M$ didn't charge me for the call and will update KB Article 829114 (I got the number wrong in my first post.)

Hey there... sorry I missed your Oct 28 post because I would have realized that was the problem if http://companyweb took you anywhere if it wasn't set up.  You would normally get a server not found error.

Glad it's fixed though... and I think you shouldn't use a $ in Microsoft if you are getting free support.  :-)
