OCS 2007 (Non-R2) Archive Installation RRS feed

  • Question

  • OCS 2007 Standard Front-End
    SQL Server running SQL 2005 SP2
    OCS 2007 Archive server (no databases locally)

    All servers running 2003 R2 x86.

    When I try to activate the archive server and point to the SQL server for the database, I get the following error:

    Connecting to SQL Server on SQL1
    Error attempting to validate the SQL server: reconfigure statement failed. This SQL instance has pending configuration changes that need to be resolved before installation can continue.
    [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Ad hoc update to system catalogs is not supported.
    I found this article:
    Didn't work.  I found this article:
    It referenced the previous article and it still doesn't work.  I can't get past this. 

    I have the SQL-DMO components installed on both the SQL server and the archive server.  MSMQ is installed on all three servers.  Don't know why it is failing.  Please advise.

  • Paolo helped me in another newsgroup to figure it out.  Regardless of what googling around says, you need to type the following in SQL:

    sp_configure 'allow updates', '0'
