Cant get through psconfig with WSS SP2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    today i applied WSS 3.0 SP2 to a MOSS 2007 SP1 installation. And the psconfig fails. I have tried several things with service accounts and passwords, and i think it is correct. Here is the information i have.

    Windows Server 2008 SP1 x86
    Database is SQL 2005 x86

    when i try to run: Psconfig -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -force

    i get this error in the cmd prompt:

    Performing configuration task 3 of 4
    Upgrading SharePoint Products and Technologies...

    Failed to upgrade SharePoint Products and Technologies.

    An exception of type Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.PostSetupConfig
    urationTaskException was thrown.  Additional exception information: The upgrade
    command is invalid or a failure has been encountered.

  • Hi,

     

    Could you please tell me which authentication are you using in your SharePoint farm?

     

    If you had Kerberos authentication enabled in the farm running with Windows 2008 server, you need to set the Impersonation Level settings to Identify itself instead of Delegation: go to DCOM config> right click on the My computers and go to properties>click on Default Properties >under Default Impersonation level selected IDENTIFY instead of Delegation.

     

    Then click on DCOM config > Right clicked on the IIS WAMREG admin Service and go to properties > Then go to Security tab and made sure that the SharePoint Application pool account has Local Launch and Local Activation permission.

     

    After do the above steps, please try to run psconfig again.

     

    Let me know the result.

  • Whats you farm topology? how many server and role?

    its look like when you run a config wizard its trying to connect to other servers and its failed.

  • Hi, thank you for you answer.

    I have one server with MOSS 2007 installed, and one server as a database server (SQL 2005). No other servers. What i have reflected when you say as you say is that i have an old outgoing SMTP server that it cant connect to. Could that be the issue?

    Which error from the event viewer you want?

    Thanks

  • You Solved Xue-Mei, absolutley amazing! Thank you so much, i have spend days with this.

    I did everything you said, and on the IIS WAMREG admin Service i added all application pool identity accounts (we have one seperate account for each App Pool).

    Thanks again!
