We are in the process of upgrading from MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2010. I created a SharePoint 2010 development server. All elements of the SharePoint environment are contained on this one server. This has MSSQL Enterprise installed on it as well as SharePoint 2010. I did an "attach database" of a copy of a database from our MOSS 2007 environment. Everything was looking good. This server was to be a template for a series of developer SharePoint environment in an ESX VMWare environment. After the server was exactly the way we wanted it, we created a template of the original server and then provisioned a new virtual server from the template with a different server name. Obviously nothing worked. I ran STSADM -o renameserver and it completed fine. One thing that happens now is that the SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER) service will not start. Here is the error message in the event log:
The SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER) service terminated with service-specific error %%17058.
At the command prompt I went to c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\mssql10_50.mssqlserver\mssql\binn.
I ran the command sqlservr.exe /c
I get the following error:
2011-11-07 09:52:14.49 Server Error: 17058, Severity: 16, State: 1.
2011-11-07 09:52:14.49 Server initerrlog: Could not open error log file 'E:\MSSQL10_50.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\Log\ERRORLOG'. Operating system error = 5(Access is denied.).
The account that I am using is a local administrator account. Anyone have any ideas of where to go from here? We really want to create these individual SharePoint environments for our developers in preparation for our upgrade to SharePoint 2010. They need to rewrite some of our custom web parts. Thanks for anyone that has an idea.
