Fresh Install of ADAM SP1 - Can't install without doing an upgrade



  • 1. GPO- Desktop background appears 90% black to users
    Hello, I'm currently using the GPO to set all users desktops to the same background image (this image is a standard windows background). When the users log in, the background starts to appear at the top of the screen, and then appears completely black for the remaining 90% of the screen. Does anyone know why this keeps occurring? Other items of note: I've also tried using different backgrounds and logging off and back on with similar results. If the user hits F5 to refresh the desktop, the background does appear as it should. While this does fix the problem, I don't want to ask 800 users to refresh their background everyday. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,
  • 2. Local Security through Group Policy Not Applied
    Alright, I have a windows Server 2003 Domain and my XP client is a member. I setup a GPO for the OU that the user is in. In the GPO I configured some policies for example a message when a user is attempting to log on and to get rid of the ALT-CTRL-DEL at login just to see if the policies were being applied. But they are not being applied. I do have other policies in the GPO that are configured and are being applied. Example. disallow Add-Remove Programs. that works fine. Any idea why the Local Security Policies wouldn't bet getting applied to my user machine? Thank You in Advance Shane Smith

    Is there a way that I can authenticate against two seperate domains on a single webserver?
  • 4. User Names and Commas
    Hello, I was wondering if anyone had a problem using commas in the user names. I found a technical bulletin about the problem, but was wondering if this is really an ldap problem or a Microsoft problem. The error I receive is: The specified user was not found. If the user exists on another domain controller in the enterprise, it may take up to 15 minutes or more for the user to be replicated to the global catalog. Microsoft's solution is to point one of you domain controllers to the global catalog. Does anyone else have any other information about this issue? Thanks
  • 5. need easy way to remove all computer certs
    I made the mistake of revoking all the computer certificates in our domain from the Certification Authority MMC on our CA server as I thought they were issued by a previous CA server that I setup and I used the reason of "change of affiliation" so now I cannot un-revoke them. I have autoenrollment setup in Default Domain Policy which is how all computers in my domain got their computer certificate in the first place. Autoenrollment will not give these computers a new computer certificate even if I reboot the computers. The only was I am able to get them another computer certificate is to open the Certificates MMC on the computer and go to the Certificates (Local Computer) - Personal folder and delete the certificate that remained in there even though I revoked it (I thought revoking it would remove it from each computers store). Then to get a new one I would right click Certificates (Local Computer) and select All Tasks - Automatically Enroll Certificates **** There must be an easier way to do this from the CA server's command prompt to delete the old certificate and then let autoenrollment work on its own. Any ideas?? Thanks in advance

Fresh Install of ADAM SP1 - Can't install without doing an upgrade

Postby Q3JhaWcgR2lsbW91cg » Fri, 10 Feb 2006 08:09:30 GMT

   I have been working with ADAM for a while and am about to install it for 
another client. I decided to use the SP1 version of the product as this seems 
to make sense. However, despite the documentation stating that you can 
install directly from the new binaries, I have been unable to do so with 
installing the old version first. The steps on the website are a fairly basic 
and refer to the wrong setup binary (adamsetup.exe rather than 
adaminstall.exe) so I don't trust it too much. 

I reviewed the documentation in the ADAM help file and the updated step by 
step guide. These both assume you are running R2. I have tested this onw 
Windows 2003 SP1 and on XP and each time I get prompts for the location of 
certain files and then the install fails.

Has anyone been able to successfully install ADAM interactively on Windows 
2003 SP1 that can provide some tips as to what I may be doing wrong? Do I 
need to go the unattended install route?

I have installed ADAM SP1 on w2k3 sp1 several hundred times.
What's the error that you get? What's in %windir%\debug\adaminstall.log?

3.SBS 2003 SP1 - Cannot install 884032 or 891193 therfore can't install SP1


I need a little help to get my SBS 2003 box to SP1. I can't instal 884032 or 

I was following the steps to install SBS 2003 SP1.

I successfully installed Server 2003 SP1.
It said I did not need the SharePoint services 2.0 SP1. (Perhaps I had done 
that some time ago)
I had already done exchange SP1

When I got to install KB891193 I got a fatal error.

I chose to do the 872769 & 884032 instead. 872769 worked ok.

The KB 884032 patch fails - I have unpacked the SP2 files into myclient apps 
folder etc as per the instructions. Also I have moved the client apps folder 
to the D drive, but made the registry change.

Please can someone help, I am frustrated and don't want to have to do a 
clean install to get SP1. My SBS 2003 server is standard edition, and has no 
foreign apps but antivirus that I disabled for the install.

I tried to do the 884032 patch in safe mode (after making the registry 
change to allow the installer to run in safe mode) and it gave the same 
error. Laso downloading again did not help.

Here are the error logs from 884032;

4.I have done a fresh install of 2003 SBE and I do not see ISA

What happened.  History: The server had previously been SBE 2000 and upgraded 
to 2003 SBE,  It died.  It has been repaired, I have reinstalled a fresh copy 
of SBE 2003 and I do not see ISA or the Firewall client install option in the 
client tools.  Please give me some insight.  The clients  that had the 
Firewall client installed prior to the server meltdown show a message when 
you hover over the Firewall client icon 'The server does not appear to be an 
ISA server." or something to that effect. When I say I do not see it I mean 
in the Server Management under Advanced management etc.

5.Installed SP2 without installing SP1

I just rebuilt our crashed server, and after installing SBS 2003, I let 
Windows Update run.  It prompted me to install SP2 but I never I saw anything 
about installing SP1 first.

I'm probably using the wrong search terms, but I can't find a solid answer 
to whether I need to install SP1 FIRST.  Most of the time an SP or update 
contains the previous updates, but I understand SP2 doesn't work this way.  
Is that correct?

I've scoured the threads and read similar questions, just not my exact 

We're not running Exchange but probably will eventually, so that has not 
been updated, I believe.

So my question is, am I ok the way it is (SP2 only) or I do I need SP1?  And 
if so, do I have to uninstall SP2 and then install SP1 or can I install SP1 
over the top of SP2?
