TFS 2010 SP1: Unknown error (0x80005000) (type COMException) – Make sure IIS 6 compat mode is turned on


[Update 3/16/11]  There is a KB article with TFS 2010 SP1 installation troubleshooting should you hit problems: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2516423.

Problem

A customer ran into this issue, and I want to post it to help anyone else who hits it.  The symptom is that you install Service Pack 1 for Team Foundation Server 2010, and it fails.

At first, we looked at the KB log file, which is an HTML file named something like KB2182621_20110314_153652021.htm (after the KB number, it’s the date and time – one log will be generated per failed attempt).  That file doesn’t contain the error unfortunately, but towards the end you will find a reference to a file with a name like {some path}\KB2182621_20110314_153652021-Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2010 – ENU-MSP0.txt, as highlighted in the log snippet below.  In that log file you will find the real error (search for the word error until you find something that looks like the stack pasted at the end of this post).

Here we found the following lines.  Bryan and Mahmoud found that the 0x80005000 error occurs when trying to access IIS through ADSI and IIS6 compat mode is not installed.  This was indeed the problem!

CAQuietExec: Exception Message: Unknown error (0x80005000) (type COMException)

CAQuietExec: Exception Stack Trace: at System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry.Bind(Boolean throwIfFail)

Solution

Make sure IIS 6 Management Compatibility is turned on (Start –> Control Panel –> Programs –> Turn Windows Features On or Off)

image

Make sure the IIS Admin Service is running (Start –> Run… services.msc)

    Thanks for all your help on this Buck!  This error occurs before you see any progress in the task bar.  The other problem I ran into is that I didn't have my local sql server engine running – that's pretty easy to find in the log but you have to open the text log referenced in the htm file… the HTM file itself doesn't give you any detail about what exception occurred.  The log file path is referenced at the end of the htm file output.

    Thanks, Jim!!!  It kept failing until I started SQL Server.

    That helped to me. Thank you so much.
