I've installed Ms SQL express 2005 on a MS Windows 2008 32bit server. Then I install EPO 4.0. All goes well entering port numbers etc until the very end as it looks like it's finished copying files/installing, it pops up with an error, "The wizard was interrupted before McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator could be completely installed".
Then it removes the directories it's created. I check the logs but there is more than one log file so I'm not sure what I'm looking at. I've read something about installing with a simple password. Which password would this be referring to?? The SA password or the windows authentication
I failed to mention it's running in a vmware session. I'm using the console within Virtual Centre. I've used this before when installing EPO on one of my win2003 servers. If I don't install SQL before the EPO installation it says it's unable to make a connection to the database server. It doesn't try to install SQL with the EPO install.
I have similar error when I upgrade my EPO 4.0 to 4.0 Patch 3. I found that the Windows application log will show some error regrading the SQL server authentication error. Do you have it too, needlenuts ?
I then follow the McaFee KB52969 to configure my EPO using sa sql authentication and do the the upgrade. It finally works.
Turns out it was a password problem. It was too complex. So I created a new user within AD and gave it a simple password with just numbers and letters. I used this username and password when asked to enter the database name, AD details and TCP port.
