This means the portal failed to start, and the portlet application  
goes into a loop trying to register itself with the portal. The log  
files will have the reasons for why the portal didn't start...

If that fails no point in going on.

Something is failing in the database connection when these scripts are  
run, it should print out to your console

My guess is something not working in the database connection, maybe a  
missing driver in the classpath, or even a problem with MS SQL scripts

The logs and console output should have enough information to help.   
Lets take a step back and try using the default Derby database. If  
that works then we can dig deeper into MS SQL

Edit the jetspeed-mvn-settings.xml and make these changes, note that  
the database URL should point to some directory on your drive



Then try running

mvn jetspeed:mvn -Dtarget=all

again, and when it bombs out check the command window for the full  
message and send it to the list. You might need to increase the size  
of your command buffer in windows
