Error 3:

The "WSSLib" adapter is suspending an outbound message going to destination URL:"http://localhost/sites/SomeException/Exceptions". Details:"The request failed with HTTP status 404: Not Found.".

Solution: This means that you haven’t put the WSSWebServices.dll in to the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\60\ISAPI\BIN folder and WSSDocLibService.asmx in to the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\60\ISAPI folder, hence it was not able to find these files, so the following exception occurred.

Note: Kindly check your internal path using the IIS manager,WebSites/_vti_bin, right click and view the properties, capture the local path located under virtual directory tab you should be able to find the folder path location.

Error 4:

When ever we click on Upgrade a server or virtual server’ in SharePoint site, we might get the annoying help file,

"To upgrade your server to Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services, run Setupsts.exe. Running Setupsts.exe upgrades your server and the default virtual server. If you have additional virtual servers to upgrade, you can upgrade each virtual server individually by using the upgrade operation with the Stsadm.exe command-line tool."

Solution: Prohibit the FrontPage from the IIS and remove it from add/remove program, then reset the IIS.
Try to open the site again and this time, You should see the following response, Virtual Server Successfully Extended, This would allow us to browse to the next level in the sites,
You can open the home page for your new Web site in your browser by using a link on the confirmation page. You can continue to extend other virtual servers or configure Self-Service Site Creation so users can create their own sites.
