Yesterday I updated the small business servers WSS from 2.0 to 3.0 all went fine (took a while tho), now i recieved the performance report on email this morning as always and it came up with;

Server Application Unavailable
The web application you are attempting to access on this web server is currently unavailable.  Please hit the "Refresh" button in your web browser to retry your request.
Administrator Note: An error message detailing the cause of this specific request failure can be found in the application event log of the web server. Please review this log entry to discover what caused this error to occur.

When i check the monitoring and reporting section of server management i recieve the exact same message on the right hand side of the tree menu.
Whats going on????
Would appreciate someones help.
Thanks

When you did the WSS upgrade from 2 to 3 did you do an inplace installation or side-by-side installation?

IE did WSS2 get taken over by WSS3 or are they running side by side?

If you didnt do the install in Side-by-side mode then that is going to be an big issue (but not only with M&R)

Well I have not seen a fix for that because you have done an inplace installation.

Basically all of these tools hang of the specific configuration of WSS2.0 and to the best of my knowledge there is no easy way to fix it. I am not sure that even if you unistall the WSS3 and try and put back on WSS2 if that would work.

I did actually read a post where people have said you can do this (in place of) installation but that is "fine" but ONLY when you dont need any of the prebuilt in functionality.

Sorted that problem myself, needed to run WSS3.0 configuration wizard, problem now is i can no longer access the WSS2.0 companyweb via http://companyweb, how do I access this temporarily and set the new WSS3.0 page to http://companyweb for internal and http://internal.domainname.com.au for external access?
