  • Question

  • I get the above error message when I try to install the App-V Management Server on a Windows 2003 SP1 machine. This machine is also the domain controller for my test bed, and has SQL Server Express 2005 installed.

    Couple of questions :

    1. Can someone please point to some resources on solving/troubleshooting this particular issue or a comprehensive installation guide ?
    2. Where is the installation log file located ? 

    Thanks in Advance!

  • I am sure I am a lot late to upate this thread. But just thought it might be helpful for someone like me who spent about an hour to figure out a way to install this on a DC. In the Database selection windows, you will have to manually enter the SQL server name (LOCALHOST\SQLEXPRESS) and then change the port to 0 from the default 1433. It just worked for me.

  • I had same problem but not on a DC.  We pointed to a real SQL server (not express) and all was fine.

  • Enable TCP/IP connection for SQL Express? It could be that being DC also brings some security policies that affect this whole thing..

     

    The logfile is, IMO, in the %temp% directory.

  • Hello,

    Any chance to post what the log-file says?

  • As Znack said earlier, it would be good if you could post the error from the sft-server.log but this sounds alot like an error that I encountered before because my test sql server was not using the default port and I wasn't running the SQL Browser. Check this link and see if its a similar problem to yours: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/appvserverandmanagement/thread/87579143-bd5b-4914-9622-1ab08e5204aa/

    Since you haven't yet been able to install the App-V Management Server you may want to try running a program like TCPview, Current Ports, or even netstat from the command prompt to see what port your DB is listening on.
