Flaming wreck

Buster the SharePoint 2010 beta crash test dummy is back again with some good and bad news. First, the good news is that the recent light bulb moment from last time allowed the successful install of SharePoint Foundation 2010 beta on SBS 2008.

The bad news is that the upgrade process after this failed.

Digging through the log file produces the following error:

 

[psconfigui] [WyukonToSqlExpress] [ERROR] [11/21/2009 7:10:00 AM]: An error occured while trying to grant the user
NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE access to the SharePoint_AdminContent_d4e397f2-a27a-48a0-a628-d25db6672bab database
on the SQL server, CIASVR01\SharePoint.  This may be expected if the caller does not have permission to perform
this operation in sql server or if the database is read-only.  To ensure that SharePoint functions correctly,
manually grant this user access to the database before performing this operation.  The user must also be granted
access to the db_owner group in the database.  The following information was provided with this error:
System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Cannot open database "SharePoint_AdminContent_d4e397f2-a27a-48a0-a628-d25db6672bab"
requested by the login. The login failed.
Login failed for user 'SBS2008\robert'

 

Which unfortunately results in http://companyweb ceasing to work.

Blast. So close. Seems like an error that can be over come with a little bit of tweaking on the permissions so we’re now off to try that.

 

Message from the labs is currently still – DON’T install SharePoint Foundation 2010 beta on SBS 2008!
