Here's the situation. We've just setup a new SMS server (SMS 2003). We have the SMS site server installed on a Windows Server 2003 R2, which is all good. We have the database on a separate server, a Windows Server 2003 R2 64-bit server running SQL Server 2005 64-bit.
All seems fine, except in the Component Status, there are a couple of things - the SMS_SQL_MONITOR shows an 'Installing' state and doesn't seem to actually get installed and the SMS_SITE_COMPONENT_MANAGER shows a couple of errors. The first is error 1039:
SMS Site Component Manager detected that the site server does not contain the binary files for the platform (processor architecture) of site system "\\DB1".
Possible cause: When installing this site, you did not specify that the binary files for this site system's platform should be installed on the site server.
Solution: Use SMS Setup to modify the configuration of this site. When asked to select the server platforms for this site, select this site system's platform.
Possible cause: You accidently configured SMS to use the wrong computer as a site system.
Solution: Remove this site system from the list of site systems for this site, and add the correct site system to the list. The list appears in the Site Systems node of the SMS Administrator console.
Possible cause: The site system is turned off, not connected to the network, or not functioning properly.
Solution: Verify that the site system is turned on, connected to the network, and functioning properly.
Possible cause: SMS Site Component Manager does not have sufficient access rights to remotely administer the site system.
Solution: Verify that the Site System Connection accounts are properly configured to allow SMS to remotely administer the site system.
Possible cause: Network problems are preventing SMS Site Component Manager from properly accessing to the site system.
Solution: Investigate and correct any problems on your network.
...and the second is error 1028:
SMS Site Component Manager failed to configure site system "\\DB1" to receive SMS server components.
Solution: Review the previous status messages to determine the exact reason for the failure. SMS Site Component Manager cannot install any SMS server components on this site system until the site system is configured successfully. SMS Site Component Manager will automatically retry this operation in 60 minutes. To force SMS Site Component Manager to immediately retry this operation, stop and restart SMS Site Component Manager using the SMS Service Manager.
... I'm wondering if there is something wrong with the server being 64 bit?
