    I'm having FRS replication problems with a new DC. SYSVOL and NETLOGON
    shares aren't being created. I'd like to install Ultrasound, but the
    instructions for doing so are apparently a state secret. Anybody have a link
    to instructions, or do I have to be a secret agent to find this out?

    (I'd ask George W, but I doubt anybody who says NUCULAR would be able to
    help me).

    Thanks

    Have you seen this MSKB?

    Opps, I forgot. Since I say NUCULAR I am not supposed to be able to help
    you. Well, you just might be surprised what people can do sometimes....

    LoneWolf,

    Now, on a more serious note (it is fun to play around everynow and again!):

    The MSKB Article that I provided is not helpful?

    Have you tried the more common FRSDiag? Here is a link:

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...8E-8553-4DE7-811A-562563EB5EBF&displaylang=en

    How about NTFRSUtil?

    There is also SONAR, if you want to get that deep into things. I guess that
    by asking about Ultrasound that you do. I assume that you have seen these:

    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/techinfo/overview/ultrasoundfaq.mspx
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/community/chats/trans/windowsnet/wnet0204.mspx

    I have neither installed nor used Ultrasound (well, not that I remember...)
    so I can not give you any personal experience (would gladly if I had any!).

    Maybe it is time for that in the lab!

    I was actually hoping someone would know how to setup Ultrasound on a new
    server with brand new SQL(MSDE) 2005.

    Thank you, Cary.

    I have seen those two links, and I have also tried out NTFRDUTL and Sonar,
    but I am looking to ward utilizing something on a more long-term basis.

    At the risk of you actually getting TO The Button and nuking me, atoms have
    a "nucleus", not a "nuculus".

    I have done this. It is brainless. I have msde 2005 running on my virtual
    dc on my laptop. It works slick. Do you have a specific question.

    When I clicked on the setup of the app it was wizard simple.

    Thank you for responding. When I run the installer, I get to the point
    where it asks for database server (e.G. server\DBInstance or server), and
    database name (e.g. Ultrasound). Under database name, the field is
    pre-loaded with "Ultrasound".

    I have SQL MSDE 2005 installed on the DC, and no other DB instances. No
    matter what I seem to provide to the prompt for server name or whatever, it
    comes back with "Setup could not connect wit the specified SQL Instance".

    What am I missing here?

    Now I'm feeling stupid, I have to give you directions without any of it in
    fromt of me. On the road tonight.

    Go to your db and create a skeleton db of ultrasound and then point the
    install to that and see if it solves the problem. Also once you have this
    up you have to push agents to each dc via the config option in Ultrasound.

    Here is my question: "How do I instantiate a new instance of Ultrasound on a
    brand-new installation of MSDE?"

    If you have an answer to THAT question, please post. I'm dying to hear from
    you.

    If you are engaging in Drive-by-postings, putting up links you found in
    Google, and/or don't even understand the question, Please don't reply.

    start / programs / Microsoft SQL Server 2005 / SQL Server Management Studio
    Express CTP
    Connect to your db server
    Click on server name / sql express
    Click on databases
    Right click on databases and select "New Database"
    Database name = Ultrasound
    Ok

    I had to go back to my notes at the office and realized I was wrong there
    are a few things you have to do. First I couldn't get it to work on 2005
    SQL Express I had to use the previous version.
    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=16720

    Second I had to build the instance from a command prompt type

    setup INSTANCENAME=GWBUSH SAPWD=abc123qw#!

    For instancename, substitute your desired instance name (I placed your
    favorite prez). The system will not install with out a strong password I
    chose abc123qw#! You can choose your own

    At the command prompt, start the service by typing
    net start mssql$GWBUSH

    For further reading I downloaded Ultrasound and copied this from the help
    file

    Installing MSDEIf your organization has SQL Server 2000 with SP3a and you do
    not want to use MSDE, you can proceed to the next section. If you want to
    install MSDE, do the following:

    To install MSDE
    Go to http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=16720. Select the appropriate
    language and download the SQL2KDeskSP3.exe file or the corresponding
    localized file. (Ultrasound uses the "US English" language envirnoment when
    connecting to SQL. This environment is installed by default in all localized
    versions of MSDE and SQL.)
    Double-click the file and follow the directions to unpack the installation
    files.
    At the command prompt, navigate to the folder that contains the unpacked
    files. In that folder, open the MSDE folder.
    At the command prompt, run the Setup program by typing the following:
    setup INSTANCENAME=instancename SAPWD=strongpassword
    DISABLENETWORKPROTOCOLS=0
    For instancename, substitute the desired instance name, such as "frsmon." To
    ensure database security, choose a strong password to replace
    strongpassword.

    If you are running the console, controller, and database on the same server,
    you can omit DISABLENETWORKPROTOCOLS=0. For more information about disabling
    network protocols for MSDE, see article 814130, "INF: How to Secure Network
    Connectivity for SQL Server 2000 Local Databases" at
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=814130.

    At the command prompt, start the service by typing
    net start mssql$instancename
