OCS 2007 error creating pool

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello everyone!

I am facing problem while trying to create pool backend with OCS.

Normally, I found this error "Pool backend discovery failed" but it also remained the same after reinstalling the Backwards compatibility.

I am using the SQL Express 2005 SP3.My database is in the local server while everything seems to be ok but failed to work.

Need a suggestion. Thanks.


An error occurred during the pool backend detection:

Failed to export pool backend configuration database settings.

Unable to get back the configuration database version..

Click 'Cancel' to close the wizard.
Click 'Try Again' to go back to the previous page and enter a different pool backend instance.
Click 'Continue' to move forward.

OCS 2007 error creating pool


Dear Genelyn Harvard

According to the error message "pool backend discovery failed", this error occurs because of a change in the behavior of SQL Distributed Management Objects (DMO) which is included in SQL 2005 SP3 Backward compatibility. This change can affect only the installation of OCS 2007 but not OCS 2007 R2. According to Microsoft support page, 2 workarounds of this issue exist. The first  is to create a pool from another server that has SQL Server 2005 SP2 client installed. The second is to follow these instructions:

On the Backend server which has SQL 2005 SP3, uninstall SQL 2005 SP3 Backward compatibility.

Install then Feature Pack for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 – February 2007 on SQL 2005 SP3 Enterprise Edition server. You can download Feature Pack for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 – February 2007 from this link: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24793

Hope this may help you.

Best of luck
