Configuring Microsoft SQL Server

Error Code: 1603
Note In the second error message, the word "occured" is a misspelling for the word "occurred."

CAUSE

The SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services installation Setup program uses the IWAM_ComputerName account to configure Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS). A problem may occur if one or more of the following conditions are true.

Note ComputerName is a placeholder for the name of your computer.
  • The IWAM_ComputerName account is disabled.
  • The password for the IWAM_ComputerName account that is stored in the following three locations is not synchronized:
    • The Internet Information Server (IIS) metabase
    • The User Manager for Domains tool in Microsoft Windows NT or the Local Users and Groups tool in Microsoft Windows 2000
    • Microsoft Transaction Server in Windows NT or Component Services in Microsoft Windows 2000

WORKAROUND

To work around this problem, explicitly install SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services without creating the virtual directories, and then manually create the virtual directories. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Install SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services without creating the virtual directories by using the RSDONOTCREATEVIRTUALDIRECTORIES command-line argument for the Setup.exe file. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Copy all the Setup files of SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services to a local folder. Make sure that the folder is located on the same drive as SQL Server.
    2. At the command prompt, change the folder path accordingly to the folder that contains the Setup.exe file of the SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services Setup program, and then run the following command.
      setup.exe /iPath\Setup\Rsrun.msi RSDONOTCREATEVIRTUALDIRECTORIES=True
      Notes
      • Path represents the path of the folder to which you copy the Setup files. For example, if you copy the Setup files to the Enterprise folder under the C drive, you run the following command.
        setup.exe /iC:\Enterprise\Setup\Rsrun.msi RSDONOTCREATEVIRTUALDIRECTORIES=True
      • There is no space between /i and Path.
      For more information about how to install SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services from the command line, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
      http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa179337(SQL.80).aspx
    3. Follow the installation steps for SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services that you see on the screen.

      Because you installed SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services without creating the virtual directories, you receive a warning message that resembles the following toward the end of the SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services installation:
      Setup could not initialize the report server. You must manually initialize the report server before using it for the first time. For more information, see the Reporting Services setup documentation.
  2. Use Internet Services Manager and create the following virtual directories:
    • Reports
    • ReportServer
    To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, click Run, type inetmgr, and then click OK.
      In Microsoft Windows Server 2003, the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager window opens. In Microsoft Windows 2000 or in Microsoft Windows XP, the Internet Information Services window opens.

    5. On the Web Site Content Directory page, click Browse.
    6. If you are creating the Reports virtual directory, locate the Installation drive\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Reporting Services\ReportManager folder.

    7. Click Next.
