Problems with Sharepoint after 983444

All my SBS 2008's companyweb sites were broken on Wednesday after 983444 had been automatically applied overnight.  Here are the steps I needed to do to fix the issue:


cd \Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web server extensions\12\BIN

stsadm -o provisionservice -action stop -servicetype spwebservice -servicename ""

stsadm -o provisionservice -action start -servicetype spwebservice -servicename ""

iisreset /restart


Now, at this point if I conrinued with the remaining commands in a batch file, the wizard would fail.  However if I wait a few minutes before running the commands it will succeed, don't know what's going on but if the following fail, wait a moment then try again, or run iisreset /restart then wait a moment then try again:


cd \Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web server extensions\12\BIN

psconfig -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -wait -force


Once the psconfig command returns 4/4 succesful, you need to add comapnyweb:80 to the bindings for the sbs sharepoint site in IIS, or to do it automatically, run the SBS 'fix my network' wizard.

  2. I have found that if you do iisreset /restart and run "psconfig -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -wait -force" without quotes directly after it works perfectly without fail.
