SUMMARY

When you run Microsoft Content Management Server (MCMS) 2002 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003 on the same physical server, but you run the programs on different virtual servers, you may receive configuration error messages. This behavior is by design.

SYMPTOMS

When you load the Document Finder dialog box for the Microsoft SharePoint Services document placeholder, you may receive the following error message:
Exception Details: System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: The virtual server that is referenced here is not in the config database.
You may also receive the following error message when you load your Microsoft Content Management Server (MCMS) 2002 applications:
Exception Details: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: An attempt was made to perform an unauthorized registry operation.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because MCMS 2002 and SharePoint Portal Server or Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) are installed on the same physical server, but MCMS 2002 and SharePoint Portal Server or WSS are installed on different virtual servers.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this problem, make sure that you install MCMS and SharePoint Portal Server on the same virtual server if you install MCMS and SharePoint Portal Server on the same physical server. Note that although you must install MCMS and SharePoint Portal Server on the same virtual server, you do not have to install them both on the server that contains the default Web site. You can install MCMS and SharePoint Portal Server on any virtual server as long as you intall them on the same virtual server.

STATUS

This behavior is by design.
