    WSUS - SQL - SCCM 2007 problem

    wsus-mssql.bmp

    I am trying to install SCCM 2007 on a Windows 2008 R2 64 bit computer (in a lab environment). I have come this far:

    -Added IIS role and configured it.
    -Installed SQL server 2005 32-bit with default instance ( I do not have sql 2008).

    When I try to install WSUS it can not see the sql server instance. I think this question has been asked before in this forum but I did not see an answer.

    Attached please find the picture where I am stuck.

    By googling I could not find a solution.

    If anybody has found a solution of this problem please let me know.

    How do you want to run WSUS, as part of SCCM or standalone but just sitting on the same server?

    I want to run wsus as part of the sccm. All on the same server. WSUS, SQL, SCCM all on same server.

    I wonder if your problem is to do with the SQL server being 32bit on the 64bit OS. I know that some application do not like this setup and I wonder if WSUS is refusing to see it because the keys are in the "wrong" part of the registry.

    Just a thought - will go off and google a bit now.

    Looks like that might be a red herring as I cannot find any references to it causing any problems.

    However, it does mention that it needs SQL 2005 SP1 - have you patched SQL 2005?

    I have uninstalled sql 2005 32 bit and installed sql 2008 64 bit. It is working now. It seems 64 bit and 32 bit does not work well together.

    As I said - I remember reading something about this causing problems - but I still cannot find where I read it - sorry.

    Glad you have been able to move forward
