When you try to install the Microsoft Internet Address Book Server with SQL Database Configuration, you may receive the following error message:

SQL Setup Failed.: Procedure Setup Failed: Can't allocate space for object "Syslogs" in database "ids" because the "logsegment" segment is full. If you ran out of space in Syslogs, dump the transaction log. Otherwise, use ALTER DATABASE or sp_extendsegment to increase the size of the segment.

The only option is to click OK, and the Setup for Microsoft Internet Address Book Server will close.


This problem is caused by specifying less than the required minimum space for the Data, Log, and Temp database created by Microsoft Internet Address Book Server Setup in SQL Server. The minimum space required for the Data, Log, and Temp databases is 40, 4, and 8 megabytes respectively. Set the Temp database at least double the size of the Log database.


You must remove Microsoft Internet Address Book Server before attempting to reinstall.

  1. Click Start / Settings / Control Panel / Add/Remove Programs.
  2. Select Microsoft Address Book Server, and click the Add/Remove button.
  3. Follow the instructions for proper removal and then reinstall Microsoft Internet Address Book Server by running the Setup.exe file from the appropriate directory.
