Summary

If you want to use full-text search with Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services on a Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003-based computer, you must upgrade the instance of Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine (Windows) (WMSDE) to Microsoft SQL Server 2000. You must then install Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3a. If you want to use the Enterprise Manager to manage the SharePoint database, you must register the SHAREPOINT instance of SQL Server. After Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3a are installed, you can turn on full-text search in Windows SharePoint Services.

INTRODUCTION

This step-by-step article describes how to turn on full-text search in Microsoft Window SharePoint Services on a Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003 Premium Edition-based computer. The steps in this article can also be found in the Premiuminstallsteps.htm file on the Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003 Premium Technologies installation CD-ROM. To complete these steps, you must be logged on to Windows Small Business Server 2003 as the built-in domain administrator.

Upgrade the instance of Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine (Windows) that is used for Windows SharePoint Services

To upgrade the instance of Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine (Windows) (WMSDE) that is used for Windows SharePoint Services, follow these steps:

Turn on full-text search in Windows SharePoint Services

Troubleshooting

If you receive an error message when you try to install SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3a to the SHAREPOINT instance of SQL Server, stop the MSSQL$SHAREPOINT service. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Services.
  2. Under Name, find the MSSQL$SHAREPOINT service. If the service is not stopped, right-click MSSQL$SHAREPOINT, and then click Stop.
  3. After you install SQL Server Service Pack 3a, make sure that the MSSQL$SHAREPOINT service restarts.
If you still cannot install SQL Server Service Pack 3a, stop all instances of SQL Server 2000, SQL Server Desktop Engine, and SQL Server Desktop Engine (Windows), and try to install SQL Server Service Pack 3a.
