This one has me stumped.. Upon initial baselining of a new client's server and ensuring that WSUS is installed and functional, it became apparent to me that this server has been having some issues for quite a while. The primary issue seems to be that at one point, there was a drive attached that was called 'E:\" and on that drive lived WSUS 2.0's MSSQL database, supporting files, and also the IIS data.
Well, "E:\" no longer exists. I do not know where "E:\" is, where it went, or who took it off of the system. All I know is that it's not there anymore and every attempt to reinstall WSUS, MSDE and every other supporting service has failed to correct the problem.
When I attempt to install WSUS 3.0 (all service pack levels have been attempted), the installation fails and I am presented with a logfile full of "Unknown Error" instances.
Is there something that I am overlooking? Please Help!
(This server is running Retrospect backup and is a filemaker server, as well... I'm sure there are database instances that could be broken if I'm not careful.)
