Installation error

Apr 18, 2011 at 11:50 PM

I'm having a hard time to run the script. I have a windows 2003 server r2. I'm installing 2005 SQL server.

I'm log on as administrator.

Please help me what I'm doing wrong.

Thank you in advanced.

Have you tried <<Your domain name>>\ServGB_SQLDB_0001 instead of ROOT\ServGB_SQLDB_0001

Hi David,

You need to use your domain, account names and passwords in the scripts.  This means you need to replace ROOT with your domain name, ServGB_SQLDB_0001 with your SQL Service account name, and supply the right password for your account.  More details of this are in the Reference Manual.
