I have been having a lot of trouble installing WSS 3.0 on windows server 2008, usign SQL 2008.
I have found often the solution where it asks to create the db usign the psconfig command line but without luck.
In the registry, the server role was WFE and when I changed it to APPLICATION, it is worst. The setup freezes.
I first made a mistake, installing wss as a standalone.... do you know any other reg key that might makes the connection to sql fails ?
It is weird since the setup creates 2 bd (config and admin content) and then cannot connects to it. WTF, you are able to creates those DB but can't connect to them ?
I have the same error when trying to connect to an existing farm. It's saying that sharepoint serivces are not initialized.
Thanks for any input.
