I'm used to install SharePoint with the basic option, that install SQL SERVER EXPRESS 2005 and configures almost everything, but now I need to install SharePoint using a database already installed (SQL SERVER 2005 Standard).
I installed the SQL Server successfully, and then I created an user on domain (DOMAIN\spuser), added him to Administration group (local), and told the SharePoint installation to use this user to connect to database (on SharePoint Configuration Wizard), and on the SSP installation (SSP, Mysites, etc).
The issue I'm having right now is that ONLY spuser can make restores (using stsadm), any other user, including the DOMAIN ADMINISTRATION (Domain\Administrator) gives me an access denied.
When using the Basic installation, all local administrators had this kind of access.
What did I do wrong? I've checked when doing the restore that the database GETS created (WSS_Content_XXXX), but no content is restored at all.
Thanks in advance.
