Microsoft MSDE installation problem

By cp409sd ·
I am having a problem installing Microsoft MSDE Rel. A on my Windows 2000 Advanced Server SP4. This server is a 2nd domain controller and is not the primary source for the global catalog info.

The install gets all the way done, then it rolls back the installation at the end. The setup parameters I used are:

setup SECURITYMODE=SQL SAPWD="secretpass" DISABLENETWORKPROTOCOLS=0 /L*v C:\MSDE_setup.log

The MSDE_setup.log contains the following relevant error:

...
Starting custom action InstallSQLAgentSecurity
InstallSQLAgentSecurity failed (MYSYSTEM,LocalSystem,87).
Action ended 10:48:19: InstallFinalize. Return value 3
...

Searching on the web, it looks like this is a problem with the Server service. I uninstalled and reinstalled "Windows File and Printer Sharing", but it did not help. I also disabled my antivirus software while installing. Any ideas??

Any help would really be appreciated, as I have been struggling with this for a while now. Thanks.

Are you running an SQl service or connecting to an SQL server? It sounds like this is a database driver problem or a connectivity problem trying to setup your drivers.

I am trying to install it to run it as a service. There is currently no SQL Server installed on that machine. I am not sure what it would be trying to connect to besides itself. Any ideas to try? Thanks.

I also disabled my antivirus software while installing ?? although this is recommended of course, I have to ask if your system is virus free first.

next do you have sql 2000 sp3A installed.
I am seeing some references to this.

there seems to be a bug also, although it does not seem to apply to you, just be aware of it.

Thanks for the help. Yes, my system is virus free. I am trying to install sql 2000 sp3a, and this is the problem I am having. Thanks for the URLs, but they did not seem to help fixing the problem. If you have any other suggestions, please let me know. Thanks!

Here's the Microsoft KB article for resolution of this issue: http://tinyurl.com/2ypx8

Also, did you try the hotfix on this article. And, did you check to make sure the Server service actually running in Computer Management/Services and Application/Services?

Thanks for the help. I have run accross this article, and it seems that this is what I am running into, however I cannot find the actual hotfix. Am I missing something?? If you are able to get it, please let me know. I would really appreciate it.

I actually did uninstall and reinstall "file and Printer Sharing", thinking that something was wrong with the Server service. Unfortunately, it did not help though.

Thanks again for the help.

It should install a DDE server component that acts like an sql server. Check your local rights assignements at first, but beyond that, I'm afraid I'm not much help. They can be found by running gpedit.msc from the command line, and browsing through Computer Configuration...

I wish I could find something that was a "red flag", but I don't see anything. Thanks for the help.

go to administrative tools,services, and check if the server service is actually running.
if not try to start it manually and try reinstalling sp4.

The link you were looking for was this one.
http://tinyurl.com/yupm6 you have to call MS.

furthermore there are some instances that who can get hurt by the rpc virus (like welchia) but without the antivirus telling you that you are infected.
you have to install http://tinyurl.com/h5l9 this patch to be protected against it (install additional security patches also via windowsupdate)

Thats all that I can suggest (except a last option new install).
