Check Your MSSQL DB configurations and see if your user have the right to conenct or added to the MSSQL users
Thanks for the quick reply!
where would I check that? I am still learning SQL, I am using the SQL Server Management Studio to connect to the database and look at the DB. I have logged in to the DB and added my administrator account to all the Roles available. I created another account and used that during the install with the same error. Would I check that in SQL Server Management Studio?
We tend to create a sql user account dedicated to epo...
To create a new user:
In SQL Server Managememt Studio, select Security, Logins.
Right click, pick New Login, create a db user for your epo db, ensure default database is master
On the Server Roles section, ensure sysadmin is selected
To check your user has the right access, go to
SQL Server Managememt Studio, select Security, Logins, right clik on your user, the select properties.
Thanks for the reply and info.
I did those steps and still have the error. It looks like I am connecting to the database from the initial screens of the install. It reports back the ports used for the communications. During the install the shortcut to launch ePo is placed on the desktop. I even double clicked on one attempt of the install and the web page displayed. I will have to look at the logs in more detail to provide a better descrition of the failure. What is the "One Hour Update" that SQL provides and is that something I can configure in the database?
I really am not sure what that message means.Anything interesting in you <epo install dir>\db\logs ?
Are you install sql express separately ? It does come with your ePO install. I would suggest you retry with that install and even give ePO 4.6 a try
Thanks for replying and assisting. I finally figured it out. I ran the install for SQL 2005 backward compability and it fixed it!! I would have thought 2008 SQL Express would have included that in its release version. I Guess Not
