Sharepoint Site Missing after failed patch. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 
    I attempted to apply update KB2553018 to Windows Sharepoint Services 3.0 (via Windows Update) running on 2008 Server (32bit).
    The updated failed with Event ID 20 in the System event log: “Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x800706be: Update for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (KB2553018).”
    After reboot, when I go to http://servername, I get the following, when I would normally get our sharepoint site:
    HTTP/1.1 200 OK Server: Microsoft-IIS/7.0 Date: Sun, 06 Nov 2011 21:33:47 GMT Connection: close
    I can open Windows Sharepoint Administration, and I don’t see any indication of the previous site.
    When I open ISM, I do see the site created, and I see the virtual directories under it. 
    However, I’m not sure where to go from here. Can anyone point me in the correct direction?

  • Hi,

    Do you have DB backup stored? If yes apply that to revert back.

    IF not execute Config wizard to bring the things in sync.

    I hope this will help you out.

    Thanks, Rahul Rashu
