It's BACK (expired certificate in SBS2003 install

T

Thomas Goodson

Well, it appears that the fix that Microsoft supplied for the problems with
installing SharePoint on SBS2k3 has just expired. (You know, the: "An error
occurred while installing Windows SharePoint Services and creating your
Intranet site.", during the intranet setup). I did a little poking around
and the certificate on sqmcfg.dll expired on 11/24/2009. (Clearly I had the
updated media) So, my question is what can I do about this? I need to get
this installed for a customer now due to a hardware issue. (I will be
pushing them to upgrade to the next SBS release)

Deja Vu all over again.

Set the date back to 11/23/2009 when you build the box, then reset it to
the right date after you build it.

Temporarily set the date on the server back to an earlier date (when the
code signing certificate is still valid). This is the same trick that
worked on the original Gold RTM media.

I don't think you even have to worry about the date with the install. The
install fails with the error message described above (or below), but then
all you have to do to fix the problem is apply this fix:

What I meant to say is that even if you do the install with the old ("bad")
media and let the install complete (but fail with the error message
indicated) all you have to do to your system to fix it is run the hotfix
from the link below.

Simple.

Can this media even still be ordered? I believe that they purchased the
original media through OLV. And how would I contact VSLC? (A phone number
would be nice.)

Ummm, yes and no. You still have to set the date back to before 11/23/2009
before you run the hotfix. (I tried this and it works only when the date is
set back). Also, there is still the problem with it breaking again every
time that a service pack (sharepoint service pack that is) is applied and
the the date isn't set back correctly.

Chucko is the issue applying sharepoint service packs still leading to the error for you? IE did you find another solution to it? I believe I may be able to help you solve it so that you do not have to "workaround" the certificate error.

Ummm, yes and no. You still have to set the date back to before 11/23/2009
before you run the hotfix. (I tried this and it works only when the date is
set back). Also, there is still the problem with it breaking again every
