.. Just setting up a new single server SharePoint installation.

I have Started the following:
   Office SharePoint Server Search
   Windows SharePoint Services Help Search
   Windows SharePoint Services Web Application



When creating a New SSP I created websites for both the SSP administration site and the 'My Sites' collection.
.. But the 'Web Application' dropdown continues to show no entries, so I'm unable to proceed.

Any suggestions?

On this page: http://<serverCA>/_admin/sspdetails.aspx?task=Create

After clicking "Create a new Web application" you go through the process and it's not available.

using "inetmgr" can you check the Sites and Application pools were created? If they weren't try again... if they were look at the sharepoint logs...

report back.

Raybies,
Thanks for answering.
I checked the entries in the IIS Manager under Computer Management and the Admin & 'MySites' Web Application exist.
Checking the Application Pool under Properties for each IIS entry shows they are using the Default AppPool [Network Service].

A review of the SQL Manager shows that the related databases exist too.

A review of the Event Log [Is this what you mean by SharePoint Logs?] shows that, under security, I was getting a DCOM error that indicated that I needed to add Network Service to the Netman permissions. I did that.

Went back into Computer Management and restarted the IIS.

Went back to the New SSP page under sharepoint and sadlt, the Web Application dropdown still has no entries.

Stumped.

I recommend you:

1.- Fix all errors in your event log
2.- Delete the previously created SSP/MySite (DB/IIS/wwwroot directories)
3.- Create a new SSP... with new My Sites.
Make sure you create them with their own application pool, and an AD account if this is not a standalone machine.


It's not big deal stuffing up the SSP creation... you can always create more.

The solution appears to be that SharePoint didn't like my using Google Chrome as my default browser. When I returned to ie, I could see the dropdown.
Stunning.

Thanks for letting me know... it's pretty hard to run through everything that may cause strange behaviors... We'd be here a very long time before I got to a question like... Are you using Chrome?
