Reinstalling SQL Server 2000 (64-bit)

SQL Server 2000

  This topic applies only to SQL Server 2000 (64-bit).

If an attempt to install an instance of Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2000 (64-bit) fails (for reasons such as specifying an incorrect login account or using a Microsoft Windows® account that does not have sufficient file permissions), you may want to resume Setup after correcting the error condition. This includes installations using either SQL Server 2000 (64-bit) Setup or the merge modules in a Windows Installer installation process.

When resuming the installation process, you must specify two installation options in addition to the options that were specified in the original installation attempt:

REINSTALL=All

Specifies that SQL Server 2000 Setup install all SQL Server 2000 features. The only value supported is All.

REINSTALLMODE={omus|amus}

Specifies the level of processing performed by SQL Server 2000 Setup. Specify REINSTALLMODE=omus when resuming a failed setup. With this option, the entire installation process is verified and completed. Specify REINSTALLMODE=amus when you have to rebuild only the master database, such as after a failure of the disk drive holding the master database.
