EP 6.0 Install on SQL Server 2005
Has anyone tried to install EP 6.0 SP 9 with SQL Server 2005? According to OSS Notes, NW04 SR1 will support SQL 2005. I am trying to install EP 6.0 on top of it, but the install is stuck. I am able to successfully install WebAS, but the portal install is stalled on phase 11 of 12. (This is the check portal deployment status step) Accorging to the install log, the portal deployment monitor is trying to confirm the portal content deployment, but it is not able to complete this step.
The log message is:
EJS_Installer::writeTraceToLogBook() Portal Deploy Monitor: Portal Content Deployment (0 of 298 files done. 0 with errors. Time elapsed: 520 seconds).
According to the install guide, this step can take 5 to 90 minutes. I have passed the 90 minute point without any progress. This is on a dual-cpu machine with 8gb of RAM. Past experience tells me this should not take this long to complete.
I have installed the portal mulstiple times successfully on SQL 2000, but never SQL 2005. I dont know if SQL 2005 is causing the issue, but it is the only difference between this and past installs I have done. Does anyone have any suggestions on whow to resolve this issue? I cant find any eror messages or log messages to indicate why the install is not able to complete.
