Error installing licensing only server/cluster RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was successfully able to install certification server in Domain A and register it as SCP for the entire forest. Now for governance reasons, we are setting up a licensing only cluster in Domain B and I consitently receive following error message while installing RMS role on the Windows 2008 server.In this particular case I am using a named SQL instance. Any help or guidance will be much appreciated !!!

    Error: Active Directory Rights Management Services: Installation succeeded with errors 

    <Error>: Attempt to configure Active Directory Rights Management Server failed. Value cannot be null. Parameter name: version at System.Version..ctor(String version) at Microsoft.RightsManagementServices.Configuration.ProvUtilsCommon.CheckSqlServerVersion(String connectionString) at Microsoft.RightsManagementServices.Configuration.ProvisioningBase.CheckInstallationEnvironment(String strDatabaseName, String strDBServerName) at Microsoft.RightsManagementServices.Configuration.ProvisioningBase.Run() at Microsoft.RightsManagementServices.Configuration.ProvisionerBase.DoProvision() at Microsoft.RightsManagementServices.Configuration.ProvisionerHelper.Run(OperationType operationType, Object data) at Microsoft.RightsManagementServices.Configuration.CmdLineHandler.Run() Remove and re-install AD RMS to attempt provisioning again.

  • Hi PankyMS,

    it seems that the installation cannot verify the SQL version.

    Is Windows 2008 or 2008 R2?

    What is the database version, service pack and edition?

    Thank you,
