Sharepoint setup SBS 2011


Back in April we migrated from our SBS2003 to our current SBS 2011 system. We did not have a sharepoint system on our previous system, so we were looking to start fresh with standard templates. In the SBS console under Share Folders & Websites | Web Sites | Internal Web Site is listed as: Unknown & The Web Site does not exist.

We have since created a separate sharepoint site, but does not link to SBS in anyway. This was done as more of a test than anything else.

 When trying to run the Sharepoint 2010 products configuration wizard we are able to connect to our sharepoint database at servername\sharepoint and it lists 3 separate configuration databases. When trying to connect to any of the three config database it asks for a passphrase. We never setup our sharepoint until now, so we do not have a passphrase to enter.

All in all -- I want to be able to have the default SBS sharepoint site link to my SBS system.

If we cannot reset, can we uninstall sharepoint and re-install it from the SBS 2011 disk. Will this also remove the sharepoint database, or will it create a new one when we re-install.

Thanks for the assistance on this!
