SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario. On a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 x64-based computer that is running Microsoft SharePoint Team Services, you try to use the Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) administrative command-line tool (Vssadmin.exe) to list subscribed volume shadow copy writers. You may notice that the Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (MSDE) writer is not included in the list. In this scenario, you may find that the Vssadmin.exe tool stops responding. You may receive the following error message in the Windows event log:
Sqllib error: OLEDB Error encountered calling IDBInitialize::Initialize. hr = 0x80004005. SQLSTATE: 08001, Native
Error: 17
Error state: 1, Severity: 16
Source: Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server
Error message: [DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied.
Note This problem also occurs with other 32-bit SKUs in SQL Server 2000 that are configured to use the shared memory protocol only.

CAUSE

This problem occurs when you configure the instance of MSDE to use the shared memory protocol only. In this scenario, the Vssadmin.exe tool for Windows Server 2003 x64 cannot communicate with MSDE by using the 32-bit client network library component for the shared memory protocol (Dbmslpcn.dll). Additionally, SQL Server Desktop Engine (Windows) is installed when you install SharePoint Team Services. The instance of SQL Server Desktop Engine (Windows) can only use the shared memory protocol.

RESOLUTION

WORKAROUND

To work around this problem, configure the instance of MSDE to use a protocol other than the shared memory protocol. For example, you can use TCP/IP instead.

Note This workaround does not work for SQL Server Desktop Engine (Windows).

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
