Error message when installing Windows SharePoint Services 3.0: “Failed to create sample data”


Received the following error when attempting to install WSS 3 on a new Sharepoint server using the Single Server Install under the advanced options:

Failed to create sample data.

An exception of type System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException was thrown. Additional exception information: Exception has been thrown by target of the invocation. Database ‘WSS_Content’ is already open and can only have one user at a time.

BTW viewing the log file that it recommends you view doesn’t seem to outline too much relevant assistance in resolving this issue which states the following:

DateTime  11  ERR  Task evalprovision has failed with an unknown exception 
DateTime  11  ERR  Exception: System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: 
Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. --->
System.InvalidOperationException: Cannot start service SPAdmin on computer
'.'. ---> System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: The service did not respond
to the start or control request in a timely fashion

However after visiting the following URL at Microsoft’s site I came past the following steps to resolve this known resolution given by them:

To resolve this issue, configure the security settings for the Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator (DTC) to use the Allow Remote Clients setting. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Component Services.
  2. In the left pane of the Component Services snap-in, expand Component Services, and then expand Computers.
  3. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
  4. Click the MSDTC tab, and then click Security Configuration under Transaction Configuration.
  5. Under Security Settings, click to select the Network DTC Access check box, if it is not already selected. Then, click to select the Allow Remote Clients check box
  6. Click OK.
  7. When you receive the message that states that the DTC service will be stopped and restarted, click Yes to confirm that you want to continue.
  8. Click OK when you receive the message that the DTC service was restarted.
  9. Click OK.

However this still didn’t seem to work as I received the same error after attempting the fix.

After then trying to re-run the configuration wizard I received the following .NET Framework error:

Which seems to disappear if you rerun the installation.

How I did manage to finally resolve the issue was to install WSS using the farm install option under advanced options.

Seems as though it was trying to write to a location that couldn’t be re-written to. So I guess my solution is more of a workaround by moving the data either to another machine with SQL on it or creating a SQL instance on the machine. smile_thinking
