SharePoint WSS 3.0 Installation Configuration Failure
Posted on 2007-10-12
Product: SharePoint WSS 3.0
OS: MS WIndows Server 2003 SP2
ASP.NET v2 installed
I'm reinstalling WSS 3.0 on a server on which I'm a member of the Administrator group. It's an "Advanced Install", server type "Stand Alone", and the data location is on a local E drive.
At the Configuration Wizard, continue through "IIS and other serveces may need to be restarted", and arrive at "Configuring SharePoint Products and Technologies", and run. At step 8, I get "Configuration Failed".
"Failed to create sample data.
An excEption of type System. UnauthorizedAccessException was thrown. Additional access information:
Access is denied (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED)"
What would cause this error to be thrown? As I said, I'm an administrator on the server, so access shouldn't be an issue.
