Last week I tried to update our test wss 3.0 farm from SP2 to SP3 in order to use the Permissions reporting tool that came along with the Sharepoint Administration Kit. However, the update failed and now the only site available is the Central Administration one.
The Windows Sharepoint Services Search has run with errors since the update try, as seen in the timer job state page in CA.
When I try to the Sharepoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard it says that the update had errors and must be run again, however it stills issues errors.
The home page for my main site shows then a white page throwing out the following error:
Server Error: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink?LinkID=96177
I had some pending contendbs recovery to make in my farm, but I have not been able to do so.
Is there any possibility I could recover my test environment? if not, How can I reinstall wss 3.0 given that the wizard mentioned above will not let me pass through without completing the update?
EDIT: Here is first error from the upgrade.log file:
