Windows Server 2008 + WSS 3.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have installed the WSS on Windows 2008 Server, and then I uninstalled it. I would like to install it again, but I get an error, what says:

    Configuration Failed
    Failed to connect to the configuration database.

    An exception of type System.InvalidOperationException was thrown. WSS configuration infrastructure was not inicialized.You must wait until completion before joining another server to the farm.

    I am looking forward to helping!

    I would be grateful if somebody could help me. Thanks!

  • I hope you did a full un-install. After un-intsall please restart your server, just to make sure. Also see if any of the directories under inetpub\wss\ on WFE or any databases on DB Server are still hanging around. If this is the case then delete them too.

    best of luck.
