Have you guys changed the Administrator Account Name?
When I rerun wizard, search application is already created (with error) and it's not available to checking.
If I delete search application and rerun wizard, I see the same error about sddl.
And I have the problem, that there is no path ""C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\15.0\Data\Office Server" ".
I did "normal" install without any dafault value changes.
But I get the same err.description
Thanks, this worked perfectly. P.S. My Administrator account is unchanged.
Had this exact problem and this fixed it. Thanks for the post.
The correct path is C:\program files\windows sharepoint services\15.0\data
