This is another sbs 2008 post install problem i'm having.
Everything installed nicely then I did updates and had a profile problem(with the default admin account created when installing sbs2008), so I renamed profile pathand deleted the reg entry...
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\ProfileList relevant user entry...
logged off and logged on again (this fixed profile prob) then I noticed a few other things wrong.
So I'm not sure if the profile fix caused the problems or if it was the updates, as I simply hadnt noticed them while I was trying to fix profile issue.
The last update I installed was MS SQL Server Ex with adv Services service pack 3 (kb955706)
The first thing I noticed was WSUS was not reporting in the SBS console, I then noticed that the Security tab in the console wasnt reporting and the printer wasnt being listed in devices.
So I open Update services snap in in advanced management console, to find a big red X. So I tried to connect to server but couldnt.
So I then tried to open SQL Express Server management but it failed to open.
The event viewer shows the following, on server startup I get 2 identical warnings for SQLBrowser, "SBSMONITORING" and "MICROSOFT##SSEE"...
The configuration of the AdminConnection\TCP protocol in the SQL instace "" is not valid.
When SQL manager crases on startup I get the following info...
Prob event name: appcrash
App name: ssmee.exe
app version: 2005.90.4035.0
app timestamp: 492b1643
fault module name: kernel32.dll
fault module version: 6.0.6001.18000
fault module timestamp: 4791a81d
exception code: e06d7363
exception offset: 0002f35f
os version: 6.0.6001.2.1.0.305.9
So back to security tab in console, when i click "view summary of virus protection or view summary of spyware protection I get the message, 'No computers were found'.
The reason I'm giving all this info is I cant help but think its all related to same issue, but that is where I become stuck.
Thanks for the help.
