How to reinstall SBS components

    I recently had to do a full disaster recovery on an SBS 2003 Standard box.
    Due to some problems with the backup system, I was unable to recover some of
    the SQL databases - specifically the Sharepoint, SBSMonitoring, and WSUS
    databases. Everything else is running fine on the box.

    I'm trying to figure out the best way to resinstall these databases, and if
    I will need to reapply any service packs or the R2 upgrade. This is what I
    had before the disaster recovery:

    * I have the orignal SBS 2003 installation media (no service packs)
    * The box was later patched with SBS SP1 (and all related SPs)
    * The box was also upgraded to R2 with a retail boxed upgrade kit
    * Windows Server 2003 SP2 was installed on the box

    What is the best way to reload these databases? At this point, I don't need
    to recover any data - I just need clean databases back.

    Thanks!

  2. Since you don't need the databases
    Have you tried simply Uninstalling the Components in add/remove?
    Then Re Installing them?

    And WSUS, IMO don't bother with 2.0 or just load WSUS 3.0

    I know how to reinstall the components, but what I don't know is if I need to
    reapply any Service Packs, or the R2 upgrade. Since I'll be reinstalling
    from the original media, I'll be loading files that are older than the
    current service packs. There's a tangled web of service packs that I've
    applied over the years, and I'm trying to avoid any surprises.

    Thanks!

  4. Since you are a IT support Tech, (And I assume since you are, that you are
    registered with Microsoft.)
    You can call Critical Down Support at Microsoft.
    And they can walk you through what Parts need to be done.

    A 3rd party backup program was used (Backup Exec,) but it did not back up the
    databases due to a configuration problem. Fortunately, all the important
    data was saved, but I'd like to get this database issue cleaned up.

    Thanks!
