    Sharepoint Central Administration broken: Reinstall on SBS 2008 possible?

    Hey everyone.

    I have a problem with my SharePoint 3.0 installation on a SBS 2008 premium
    in use (after swing migration from SBS 2003).

    Problem description:

    I can't open the central administration site anymore. When I try to open the
    central administration http://servername:24449/ I get an http 404 error.
    I realized the problem when I tried to fix the Windows SharePoint Services 3
    Search error Events ID 2424 an 2436 (Gatherer error).

    As far as I could find solutions, they all need access to central
    administration website sooner or later. So I searched for information on
    fixing the access to central administration 3.0 first or for reinstalling
    SharePoint from scratch. But I just found solution for SBS 2003 to reinstall
    SharePoint not for SBS 2008. I can't rebuild the SBS Server itself, because
    it's in production.

    Any help in regaining access to my SharePoint site is greatly
    appreciated!

    Hello Simon,

    Thanks for your post and Susan's input.

    In case you haven't checked the below article, consider repairing Windows
