There has been a change in SQL 2005 SP3 that can impact the installation of OCS 2007. This does not impact OCS 2007 R2.
Publication date: February 2009
Product version: Office Communications Server 2007 R2
SQL 2005 SP3 has an update that changes a return code that the OCS 2007 install was not designed to handle. If you are having to install a new OCS 2007 pool and are using SQL 2005 SP3 here are two possible work around to complete the install.
- Install EE pool from a server that has SQL 2005 Sp2 client tool on a different server altogether
- Uninstall SQL 2005 SP3 Backward compatibility and then install SQL 2005 SP2 BC(SQLServer2005_BC.msi on SQL 2005 Sp3 EE server.
