Reinstalling SQL Server 2000 (64-bit)
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:
Specifies that SQL Server 2000 Setup install all SQL Server 2000 features. The only value supported is All.
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.
