Hi,

 I had SCOM 2007 installed on a 2003 server box. I'm trying to instal SCCM 2007  as a new site, but can't manage to do so.

I've manually removed the clients from all pc's within the domain, I've uninstalled SCOM 2007 using the uninstall wizard and I've deleted the systems management folder from AD (it was empty anyway).

Every time I go to install sccm 2007 I only get the option of installing a secondary site, no primary.

Any advice much appreciated.

Which database are you using for SCCM2007? If it's the same DB, then you might have to look there.

sql server 2005, regardless of whether I'm not using the same machine I sitll get this message.

I'm not sure how to delete the database created within sql server.

At the first prompt for the installer on sccm I have the primary site option greyed out

Somewhere it's written that Primary Site already exists. Registry or some local file, or SQL...
I'll try to check it out..

ID10t error!

  I was running the 2007 sp1 update, I thought this was the original installer.

I've installed the evaluation version, which is 380mb, however sp1 is over 1gb. I'd have thought it'd say something along the lines of "sccm 2007 must be installed for this update"
