and call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me. (Paslm 50:15)
A client called me to his aid. Small Business Server 2008 (NOT R2) in an aged but stable installation. Exchange 2007, SQL2008 R2, six clients.
Everything patched to date.
He ran an update of his ERP / bookkeeping-software over the weekend. Installation went without trouble up to the final step: Patching and updating of the database content. There the process froze about 20min into the update, way past the point where anny changes are done to the system itself.
Anyway, he rebooted, and after the reboot he was unable to open any mmc snapins. It's a pain to diagonse anything when you can't even access the eventlog. What I get is discribed here:
Unfortunately in German. It basically sais that you should rename the macine.config file from C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\F
This file is not present in my installation. Copying it from another machine has no effect.
What do do? Anybody have a hint?
