This Guide assumes you are installing Microsoft SMS 2003 Sp1. This ISO is available for download on MSDN. As part of this guide we will upgrade SMS 2003 sp1 to SMS 2003 sp2. Optionally, Service pack 3 for Microsoft SMS 2003 is available online so you can install that after this installation (if you want).

This guide also assumes that you are setting it up on a Windows 2003 Server (sp1 or later) and that you have installed SQL server 2000 or later. SQL 2005 is the recommended database solution today for SMS 2003 however for the purposes of this article only SQL server 2000 sp4 is covered.

Microsoft recommends the following server requirements:-

� Internet Information Services (IIS) must be installed and enabled as part of the Windows Server installation for certain SMS site system roles.

� Microsoft SQL Server� 7.0 with Service Pack 4 or later, SQL Server 2000 with Service Pack 4 or later, Microsoft SQL Server 2005, Microsoft SQL Server 2005 SP1, or Microsoft SQL Server 2005 SP2 is required for the SMS site database system role.


If you have not installed and configured IIS then do NOT start the SMS installation. IIS must be setup and configured first.

after quite some time you have installed SMS 2003 Sp2. If you want to upgrade it to Sp3 then go ahead. I stayed at Sp2 because that was all i needed.

at this point i decided to reboot.

after the reboot you can startup the SMS administrator console
