Can't reinstall WSS v2

Postby guest » Sat May 24, 2008 9:54 pm

SharePoint 2.0 encountered some problem and you would like to reinstall
it. However, when performing the reinstallation steps in KB829114, message which said it require SQL Service Pack 4 was received. Now, when trying to uninstall Intranet, we receive the same error message.


First of all, I would like to confirm if you have tried to install SQL Service Pack 4 from the premium CD. As
the reinstallation of SharePoint can be affected by many factors, based on the error message, reinstall SQL
SP4 may get this issue resolved.

If reinstall SQL SP4 doesn't work, please follow the below steps exactly and let us know in which steps the
error is given. Please also capture a screenshot of the error to better illustrate this issue.

I. Uninstall Intranet

1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs.
2. Select Windows Small Business Server 2003 and then click Change/Remove. The Setup Wizard
appears.
3. Click Next to start the wizard.
4. On the Windows Configuration page, click Next.
5. On the Component Selection page, in the Action column, change Server Tools to Maintenance,
change Intranet component to Remove, and then click Next.
6. On the Component Summary page, click Next.
7. Click Finish.


II. Uninstall Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine (SHAREPOINT)

In Add or Remove Programs, select Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine (SHAREPOINT) and then click
Remove. A dialog box appears. To confirm that you want to remove, click Yes.


III. Delete Registry Keys

1. Delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SmallBusinessServer\Intranet
2. Delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\SHAREPOINT
3. Delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\Ports\Port
/LM/W3SVC/4: (Do not delete "Port /LM/W3SVC/1:" because it is FronPage Server Extension 2002 which is
installed on the Default WebSite. If you see additional "Port /LM/W3SVC/X:", backup and then remove
them)


IV. Delete IIS Virtual Directory

1. Delete SharePoint Central Administration (Do Not Delete Microsoft SharePoint Administration. It
belongs to FronPage Server Extension)
2. Delete Companyweb

Note: If AV software install any extra IIS virtual directory, also remove them if possible. They sometimes
use port 8081 which will conflict with our SharePoint Central Administration virtual directory.


V. Delete Application Pool

There should be only 4 application pools (DefaultAppPool, ExchangeApplicationPool,
ExchangeMobileBrowseApplicationPool, and MSSharePointAppPool). Besides those 4, delete all the extra.

VI. Rename Folders

1. Rename C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL$SHAREPOINT
2. Rename C:\Inetpub\companyweb


VII. Install the intranet component
1. In Add or Remove Programs, select Windows Small Business Server 2003 and then click
Change/Remove. The Setup Wizard appears.
2. Click Next.
3. On the Windows Configuration page, click Next.
4. On the Component Selection page, in the Action column, change Server Tools to Maintenance,
change Intranet component to Install, and then click Next.
5. On the Logon Information page, click Next.
6. On the Component Summary page, click Next.
7. Click Finish.
