I get this while installing SMS
Systems Management Server 2003 R2
SMS 2003 R2 Scan Tools require SMS 2003 Service Pack 2 or above. Only the installation of the Custom Updates Publishing Tool will be allowed.

    Accepted Solution

    Question: Are you performing an upgrade or clean install? or just installing the Scan Tools?

    If an upgrade from SMS 2003, you will need to install the service packs (SP1 and SP2) first and then install R2

    Otherwise, check the following link for your utility and then check that you have met all pre-install requirements.

    First, I'd make sure you meet the Supported Configurations:

    2nd, make sure your Primary site has access to SQL Server. An excerpt follows from:

    Configuring SQL Server for SMS

    To configure SQL Server for SMS, you must complete the following tasks. You can perform these tasks after you install SQL Server, but you must complete them before you install SMS 2003.

    SMS 2003 supports only the SQL Server default instance. SQL Server named instances are not supported in SMS 2003. This applies only to SQL Server 2000 or later. For more information, see the SQL Server Help.

    Beyond that, I'm a bit out of my depth.  I'll be happy to help you search for an answer until someone more learned joins this discussion.
