SYMPTOMS

The Rebuild master utility (rebuildm.exe) provided with Microsoft SQL Server 2000 stops responding in the Server Configuration step if the source directory that contains data files is on a CD-ROM.

For example: <MyCDDriveLetter>:\x86\data

NOTE: You must terminate the action manually.

The following error message may occur:
Rebuild Master failed with error -1:
The error occurred during server configuration. Refer to install\cnfgsvr.out and the log\errorlog files in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL for diagnostic information.

CAUSE

Rebuildm.exe needs the original master, pubs, msdb, and northwind files (both data and log). Rebuildm.exe copies these files into the installation directory of SQL Server 2000. When the copy completes, rebuildm.exe leaves all those files with the Read-only attribute set to on, which then prevents SQL Server from starting.

WORKAROUND

Copy the entire \x86\data folder from the CD-ROM share to the network, and then use the network as the source directory for data files. Remove the Read-only attribute on all directories and files in the share. To do this, perform a search of the share by using *.*. Right-click to select all the returned files, click Properties, and then clear the Read-only check box.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server 2000.
