sms and corrupted metabase

you've probably have seen this error come through before:

Product: SMS Management Point -- Error 25006. Setup was unable to create the Internet virtual directory CCM_System - The error code is 80020009.

one of my cohorts, andrew cohen, came up with this fix from microsoft:

  1. Make a copy of metabase.xml from %windir%\system32\inetsrv.
  2. Enable manual metabase edit by right-clicking on Server in IIS Manager.
  3. Open metabase.xml with notepad.
  4. Search for ccmisapi.dll and delete the entire line. save the file with the same name.
  5. Change metabase back to automatic edit by right clicking on servername in IIS.
  6. Restart IIS.
  7. In the SMS Admin Console, under SMS Site Systems, properties of target MP, uncheck Management Point selection.
  8. Check MPSETUP.LOG to make sure the MP has uninstalled successfully.
  9. Recheck the MP check box and wait for installation to complete.
