  • The issues that are fixed by this hotfix package
  • The prerequisites for installing the hotfix package

SYMPTOMS

In SQL Server 2000, you receive an error message when you try to rebuild the master database. This problem occurs when the following conditions are true:
  • You are running SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 4 (SP4) 64-bit, and you have installed hotfix builds.

    Note This problem does not occur in SQL Server 2000 32-bit.
  • The last hotfix build that you have installed is not earlier than hotfix build 2145 and is not later than hotfix build 2153.
The error message text is similar to the following:
The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2920.
If you try to rebuild the master database by running the Setup program graphical user interface (GUI) in verbose log mode, the following message is written to the Setup log file:
DEBUG: Error 2920: Source directory not specified for file bcp.exe.13DAFE9F_3C2C_41B4_9C0D_08E0F1D73D6A.
For a list of all publicly released SQL Server 2000 Post-Service Pack 4 hotfixes, see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
894905 Cumulative list of the hotfixes that are available for SQL Server 2000 SP4

RESOLUTION

The installer does not install this hotfix correctly on x64-based systems. This installation issue occurs when the following conditions are true:
  • The system uses the Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) AMD64 processor architecture or the Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology (EM64T) processor architecture.

    Note This issue does not occur on systems that use the Intel Itanium processor architecture.
  • The system is running a 64-bit version of the Microsoft Windows Server operating system.
  • The system is running a 32-bit version of SQL Server 2000.
We have corrected this installation issue in later builds of SQL Server 2000, starting with version 8.00.2244. When a customer who is running SQL Server 2000 on an x64-based system requests this hotfix, we will provide a build that includes this hotfix and that can be installed correctly on an x64-based system. The build that we provide will be version 8.00.2244 or a later version.

Rebuild the master database

You may have to rebuild the master database on computers that have SQL Server 2000 SP4 installed and on computers that have SQL Server 2004 post-SP4 hotfix builds installed. To do this, follow these steps:

Note You cannot use the Setup program GUI to rebuild the master database on computers that have SQL Server 2000 SP4 installed.
  1. Perform one of the following actions:
    • Install SQL Server 2000 hotfix build 2159 or a later hotfix build.
    • Uninstall all hotfix builds from hotfix build 2145 to hotfix build 2153. Then, install hotfix build 2156.
  2. If the SQL Server 2000 authentication mode is set to Windows Authentication Mode (Windows only), use SQL Server Enterprise Manager to temporarily change the authentication mode to Mixed Mode (SQL Server and Windows).

    Note If the target server has the SQL Server 2000 authentication mode set to Windows Authentication Mode, you cannot rebuild the master database. When you try to connect to the server that is running SQL Server, you receive the following error message:
    Login failed for user 'sa'. Reason: Not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection.
  3. Run the following setup command:
    setup /i {{ProductCode} | OriginalInstallationMSIFile} /qb REINSTALL=All REINSTALLMODE=amus {SAPWD=password | BLANKSAPWD=1}
    Notes
    • ProductCode represents the product code. To obtain the product code, locate the following registry key:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSSQLServer\Setup\ProductCode
    • You must specify either BLANKSAPWD or SAPWD, even when the target server that is running SQL Server is using Windows Authentication Mode. If you do not specify either BLANKSAPWD or SAPWD, you cannot rebuild the master database. When you try to run the setup command, you receive the following error message:
      You must provide a system administrator (sa) password to continue installation.
  4. If you did not change the SQL Server 2000 authentication mode in step 2, go to step 6.
  5. Use SQL Server Enterprise Manager to change the SQL Server 2000 authentication mode back to Windows Authentication Mode.
  6. You may have to use SQL Server Enterprise Manager to change the following server properties after you successfully rebuild the master database:
    • The security mode
    • The cross db ownership chaining option
    • The Error Reporting option (Dr. Watson error reporting)
