Re: Installation of ePO 4.6 Patch3 failed

07/16/2012 08:18:50,spid53,Unknown,Starting up database 'ePOInstallerTestDB-{AF05AA5C-1B53-45DE-9FFD-8F37F329A4BC}'.

The same as in defined.


Re: Installation of ePO 4.6 Patch3 failed

Is "MSSQLSERVER" really your instance name ?

What if you configure https://<eposervername>:<consoleport>/core/config with an empty instance name - does the "Test connection" button work successfully ?

Yes its the instancename from the standard sql installation.

And thats it. Without the instancename the setup runs.

But why does the server works with that instancename, why it is working?

Ah - that makes sense now

When the instance name is specified, it tells the installer to try to dynamically determine the SQL port by querying the SQL browser service (which is probably not running, or is firewalled.) Most importantly this setting takes precedence over the port setting, so even if this is specified correctly, the install will still be unable to determine the port.
