  • Intranet and Exchange Killed by Updates


    Recently a someone applied all updates from MS to their 2003 SBS server (list of updates below), since this sharepoint (OWA, etc) has stopped working and exchange has also ceased to function (won't qualify the domain name).

    Updates that were installed are:- KB931836, KB911897, KB918118, KB920213, KB9228819, KB923191, KB923414, KB923689, KB923694, KB923980, KB924191, KB924496, KB924667, KB926436, KB928090, KB928255, KB928843, KB929969.

    What I have done so far to counter the damage done by the updates includes:-

    1/ Repaired the SBS installation from add remove programs (intranet installation failed) this operation was repeated a few times;

    2/ Uninstalled the application server including IIS, application server, message queuing from add remove programs. Reinstalled the above and repaired / reinstalled SBS.

    3/ Removed all the recently installed updates from add remove programs and repeated steps 1 & 2.

    There wasn't a positive result from any of this with exchange or the intranet installation. The intranet installation fails everytime with one or two component faults. This seems to be a common occurance in SBS 2003. Is there a surefire way to get sharepoint installed again if it fails??.

    Thanks for any assistance you can offer.

    There are a number of problems with reinstalling Sharepoint (Companyweb) depending upon what media you install from (or have available) RTM, SP1, or R2. What your Sharepoint level is ie SP1, SP2 etc.
    The general rule is to try and put back the level that you have the media for.
