  • > Is it THE current one.

    It's marked as being from the end of July. How much newer do you want ? :)

    Seriously Microsoft retain the URL when they update theses things so that this IS the latest version of it and if they update it tomorrow, on Friday your URL will continue to point to the latest version.

    The URL given by Ahmed seems a pretty good one for the specific case of MOSS + SP2.

  • Thank you,

    I couldn't make too much sense of the technet article. But I did get it.
    The keirgordan blog was very concise.

    Here is what worked for me.

    Instruction for slipstreaming MOSS SP2 to WINDOWS 2008 R2

    aquire this file

    en_office_sharepoint_server_2007_standard_and_enterprise_edition_with_service_pack_1_x86_x64_dvd_x14-40187.iso

    burn it to a DVD or mount it with CloneDrive

    Copy the entire contents of that mounted .iso to a folder
    C:\ONE

    aquire this file
    wssv3sp2-kb953338-x64-fullfile-en-us.exe
    put it here
    C:\TWO
    open a command prompt
    navigate to C:\TWO
    issue this command
    mkdir Updates
    issue this command
    wssv3sp2-kb953338-x64-fullfile-en-us.exe/extract:C:\TWO\Updates

    aquire this file
    officeserver2007sp2-kb953334-x64-fullfile-en-us.exe
    put it here
    C:\THREE
    issue this command
    mkdir Updates
    issue this command
    officeserver2007sp2-kb953334-x64-fullfile-en-us.exe/extract:C:\THREE\Updates

    Copy all the files from
    C:\TWO\Updates INTO
    C:\ONE\X64\Updates

    Copy all the files from
    C:\THREE\Updates INTO
    C:\ONE\X64\Updates


    DELETE wsssetup.dll FROM C:\ONE\X64\Updates

    run setup in
    C:\ONE or C:\ONE\x64

  • Good idea :-)

    Does anyone have tried using the following edition: SW_DVD5_Office_SharePoint_Server_2007_64Bit_English_MVLS-wSP1_MLF_X14-50035.ISO instead ?

    and then after it install MOSS 2007 SP2, is there any list of cumulative update that we need to install in certain order ?

  • Most people will not have access to that iso file.

  • ah Yes,

    let me get it from http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/try-it/Pages/trial_software.aspx 64bit and follow the instruction to slipstream it.

    Cheers.

  • Not sure about others, but I'm getting an error attempting to download from TechNet (taken there from the trial page above).... yes I'm a subscriber.  Where can I get the iso ?

  • I tried installing it and the software installs just fine with 64-bit trial downloaded from Microsoft's web site. But after I run Configuration Wizard I run into the following error and setup cannot continue:

    Failed to create the configuration database.

    And another message:

    Configuration of SharePoint Products and Technologies failed. Configuration must be performed in order for this product to operate properly. To diagnose the problem, review the extended error information located at C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\LOGS\PSCDiagnostics_2_5_2010_14_47_7_420_2130375781.log, fix the problem, and run this configuration wizard again.

     

    The weird thing is that the database is actually created on the SQL server, so it doesn't look to me like it's a permission issue.

    My configuration:
    MOSS box: Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit (clean install, MOSS 2007 worked just fine on the same box with Windows Server 2008 installed previously)
    SQL server: Windows Server 2008 OS 64-bit, SQL Server 2008 64-bit.

    Any help in debugging this would be appreciated. At this point I don't want to wipe the MOSS box and start fresh with Windows 2008 Server. It would be a step back. Thanks

  • Okay, I found solution to the issue. I had InfoPath 2010 Beta installed on the server and it was causing the Configuration Wizard to fail (see http://blogs.msdn.com/tmathis/archive/2009/11/03/spupgradeexception-one-or-more-types-failed-to-load-exception-when-running-configuration-wizard.aspx).
