  • SQL Server 2012 Express SP1 will not install on Windows Server 2012 Essentials R2

    I have been attempting to install SQL Server 2012 with SP1 Express Edition for about a two weeks and have been unsuccessful.  My organization recently purchased a new Dell PowerEdge T320 Server (64 Bit) with Intel Xeon Proc.-E5-2420; 2.2Ghz, 32 Gb RAM,
    1 Tb RAID 5 H/D, and Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials (preinstalled).  The server will be configured as an on premises server.  We are running a small church management application that requires SQL Server 2012 SP1 Express.  Per the direction
    of our application vendor, we downloaded the SQL Server 2012 SP1 Express file (SQLEXPRADV_x64_ENU.exe) from the Microsoft SQL Server Website.  We ran the file "As Administrator" and the SQL Server 2012 Setup program began. 
    We selected New SQL Server Stand-Alone Installation, successfully installed the needed Product Updates, and accepted the MS SQL Server 2013 Express License terms. 
    When the Feature Selection Page appeared we checked only the "Data Base Eng Services".  The
    Instance Configuration Page was displayed and we inserted a "Named Instance= Shelby",then pressed next.  On the
    Server Configuration Page the only change was setting the "sql server browser = automatic".  The Database Engine Configuration Page appeared
    and we inserted the following settings:1] Server Configuration Tab; a) mixed mode, b)inserted SQL Server Admin pswd, c) added current user as administrator: 2] Data Directories Tab; default/no changes: 3] User Instanced Tab; default/no
    changes: and 4] Filestream Tab; default/no changes.  Next the
    Reporting Services Configuration Page came up and the reporting services native mode was set to
    "install and configure".  The Error Reporting Page appeared and was left as the
    "default".  The SQL Server 2012 Setup program proceeded to Installation Progress Page and started to install. Just before the install program ended it displayed a message saying that there
    were errors and the Database Eng Services did not succeed. I uninstalled SQL Server 2012 SP1 Express three (3) times, ran Windows Update after every uninstall, attempted to install the Database Engine and got the same results.  Are there any patches or
    special procedures for correctly installing SQL Server 2012 SP1 Express on my hardware configuration or Windows Server 2012 Essentials R2?  Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Can you post the setup Summary and detail logs, which will help to figure out the problem? The details about the location can be found at https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143702(v=sql.110).aspx

  • Installing SQL Server 2012 Developer Edition or wait for SP2?

    Hi everyone,
      I just received my copy of SQL Server 2012 Developer Edition I ordered.  As usual, before installing, I searched the web for any hint or other stuff on the subject.
      I first found that SP1 was already available.  Honestly I prefer installing using the last version available instead of upgrading.  I found the SP1 install package using the following web address:
    http://www.microsoft.com/fr-ca/download/details.aspx?id=35575
      Is this the right install package to use? 
      Now, still reading everything I could find on that SP1, I found stories about major issues with SP1. 
    Two examples I remember:
    http://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/feedback/details/770630
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2793634/en-us?wa=wsignin1.0
    Two others (not specifically related to SP1):
    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqlsetupandupgrade/thread/a0da3372-ab3d-4af0-b4c4-0d47163e0e03/
    http://www.sqlperformance.com/2012/11/system-configuration/2012-cal-problems
      My question.  Should I wait for SP2?  If so, any target date when it should be available?
      If not, what would you recommend as the logic install sequence?  Should I look for any cumulative update(s)?  Any other "manual settings" I should consider?
      Finally, can someone guide me regarding what options I should choose while installing.  My main goal is to program/build C++, C# applications using VS2010 that will interface with SQL Server for data storage purposes (add/update/delete,
    batch update/delete) and reports.
    Hope to hear from someone.
    Stephane
    BTW:  My current setup is the following:
    Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU  [email protected]
    3.00 Go
    Vista Ultimate SP2 32bits
    Visual Studio 2010 Professional Edition (which will be upgraded to last SP once installed)

    Hi again,
      I proceeded with download of CU7.  On Microsoft's webpage, there are several files we can download:
    2012_SP1_DAC_CU7_2894115_11_0_3393_x86
    2012_SP1_AOrcleDes_CU7_2894115_11_0_3393_x86
    2012_SP1_AOrcleSer_CU7_2894115_11_0_3393_x86
    2012_SP1_PPExcel_CU7_2894115_11_0_3393_x86
    SQLServer2012_SP1_CU7_2894115_11_0_3393_x86
      Which one I should choose?
      Also, some people reported having problems installing this update. 
    http://blogs.msdn.com/b/sqlreleaseservices/archive/2013/11/19/cumulative-update-7-for-sql-server-2012-sp1.aspx
      Can you comment?
    Thanks again for helping,

  • Installing SharePoint 2013 with SQL Server 2012 Developer Edition

    Hi,
    Can we use SQL Server 2012 Developer edition with SharePoint 2013?  One thing that came to my mind was setting max degree of parallelism, is that supported in Developer edition?  Looking forward to your assistance here.
    Thanks,
    kashif

    I'm slightly incorrect. See http://download.microsoft.com/download/6/4/A/64A1EC8F-F575-41E1-9D34-821FA9F98F8E/SQL_Server_2012_Licensing_Reference_Guide.pdf.
    Licensing SQL Server for Non-production Use
    The SQL Server 2012 Developer Edition is a full-function version of the SQL Server software—with all the 
    features and capabilities of the Enterprise edition—licensed under the Developer Tools model, which is a “per 
    user” model. One license is required for each person that accesses or uses the software. 
    When using SQL Server software for development, test or demonstration purposes, only the users are licensed 
    and there is no need for a corresponding license for the actual server systems running SQL Server software in 
    this case. 
    As long as only licensed users have access to the software, customers can install as many copies of the software 
    on any number of servers that are used exclusively for development, test or demonstration purposes. This 
    is significant, because it allows customers to run the software on multiple devices (for testing purposes, for 
    example) without having to license each non-production server system.
    But no, as you can see above, you'll have no issues with the software (Developer Edition is Enterprise Edition with licensing restrictions, but no functionality restrictions).

    Hi,
    This 3rd time I followed this link. But nothing new, same error.
    Can you please tell me how to do follow, I cannt do the 1st step, how to change the local system to windows level account, vice-versa. It is shown mine as
    Server Configuration Manager(Local) 
    From here I folllowed the steps ---[I cannt insert link/image :-(]
    SQL 2008/R2 setup fails with "Wait on the database engine recovery handle failed" 
    If I right clicked on SQL Server Service, there is no option to change the account. 
    Hello,
    Thanks for your patience,did you tried stesp mentioned in below article
    http://blogs.msdn.com/b/sqljourney/archive/2012/03/16/sql-2008-r2-setup-fails-with-quot-wait-on-the-database-engine-recovery-handle-failed-quot.aspx
    To resolve it, follow these steps:-
    When the installation throws this error, click on OK and allow it to proceed. It will fail for Database Engine, but the SQL Server service should have
    been created. Check the Services console.
    If the service is present, perform the following steps:-
    1. Go to SQL Server Configuration manager, right click on the SQL Server service, and change the service account (if it is local system, give
    it a windows level account, and vice-versa). It might throw a WMI error but you will see the account getting updated anyway. If not, then use the Services console. Change the account for SQL Agent as well.
    Use this link to change sql server service account
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms345578.aspx
    2. Next, try to start the service. It should come online.
    3. However, you will not be able to log in to the SQL Server
    4. Now stop the service and start it from the command prompt using -m -c -T3608 parameters.
    5. Now try logging in to the server using admin connection from sqlcmd (sqlcmd admin:<server name>\<instance name> ...)
    6. Once logged in, use the sp_addsrvrolemember '<domain\username>','sysadmin'.
    Also add the builtin/administrators to the sysadmin role
    7. Now stop the service from the command prompt and start it from SQL Server configuration manager
    You should be able to log in to the server now.
    Hope this helps someone.
    Please revert if it helps or even if it does not

  • SQL Server 2012 Developer Edition Installation Problem

    Hi,
    I have just been given a new PC by my IT department so am trying to get all the software I need onto the PC. Since I am now running windows 7 I wanted to try SQL Server 2012, however whenever I go to install it, one of the checks always fails as follows:-
    SetupCompatibilityCheck
    Checks whether the current version of SQL Server is compatible with a later installed version.
    This version is not compatible with a later installed version. For more information, see the compatibility information at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=160850.
    All other checks are successful but no matter whether I use the MSDN disc the software is on or the downloaded copy, the software doesn't seem to like my PC. I don't understand how the software can believe there is something
    newer than SQL Server 2012 on the system. When I run the discovery tool elsewhere in the installer it reports that nothing is installed.
    Is anyone able to give me some information on what might be triggering this? I did install Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio 2010 on the system prior to this, as well as SQL Server 2008 R2, but I have since removed all of these products again in order
    to try and identify the cause of this problem. Now with nothing left on the system again, it still reports this same error. Could it be something is left over from those installations that is causing this problem? 
    Any help would be much appreciated
    Regards
    Paul

    Hi Paul,
    Any progress?
    This issue you met may be due to there are still registry keys left related to the SQL Server, even though we have uninstalled the SQL Server.
    To fix the issue, we can remove the left keys manually:
    1. Click 'Start' > 'Run' > type 'regedit' > press Enter key.
    2. Backup this registry keys that related to SQL Server under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
    3. Delete keys that relate to SQL Server under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall.
    4. Restart the setup installation.
    If you have any problem, please feel free to let me know.
    Thanks,
    Maggie

  • Installing Sql Server 2012 Enterprise edition on Windows 7

    Hello,
    I have a desktop with 1 TB Hard Disk and 8GB RAM. It has Windows 7 installed. I want this to be used as staging server at my work. I installed the SQL Server 2012 Enterprise edition. While installing I used service accounts as default when prompted
    which I normally do while installing on a desktop. But now I want this to be used as a server where people can access this box as they do on a sql server machine .i.e. connect to server using SSMS and get to databases on the server and also remote
    desktop into this machine. So, Is it fine to install with default service accounts?
    Also how can I connect to this newly installed sql server box from another desktop using SSMS?
    Thank You.

    Hello,
    Installation of  SQL server 2012 Enterprise edition on Client machine(Win 7)  is not supported( you can install ) .See below for Hardware and Software requirements for SQL Server 2012.You cannot claim support from Microsoft and I guess statging
    is also important.
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143506.aspx
    Now to your main question.To connect
    Makes sure Browser service is running
    Make sure you make exception in firewall for SQL Server services and incoming connections
    Make sure you specify correct instance name when connecting from remote

  • SQL Server 2012 Developers Edition

    Will SQL Server 2012 Dev. Ed. work on Small Business Server Standard 2011?
    Thank youi
    Brian Geregach

    Hello,
    Yes, but since you have SBS 2011 Standard you need to apply SP1 for Windows Server 2008 R2 first, then try to install SQL Server 2012.
    If you have SBS 2011 Essentials, you don’t need to apply Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. You can install SQL Server 2012 Developer Edition.
    Hope this helps.

  • Is it possible to install SQL Server 2012 Standard Edition on a Windows Server 2012 Standard Which is installed on a Virtual Machine that is created by Hyper-V?

    Hi
    I have recently bought a Virtual Machine from a data center and installed a Windows Server 2012 Standard Edition on it. As I tried to install the SQL Server 2012 Standard Edition, the data center administrator denied me to do this telling me it is not possible
    to install any licensed Microsoft software on a Windows installed on virtual machine created by Hyper-V. It was really strange for me! I wanna know if this is true.
    Thanks Everybody

    Hi Farid,
    For SQL server running on virtual server please refer to following article :

  • Sql server 2012 evaluation edition expired

    Hi Gurus,
     sql server 2012 evaluation edition expired,
    Here i don't have any backups and when i browsed few blogs suggest to upgrade to another edition from Evaluation edition.
    1)Do upgrading the edition keeps all  the user databases the same and how about the logins and jobs and other data in system databases.
    2) Am having a developer edition 2012 can i attach the data files ( .mdf ) to the instance using attach database method from Evaluation Edition Instance 2012   to    Developer Edition 2012.
    3)If i uninstall the Evaluation edition 2012 can i have any loss of data.
    4)Please suggest me the best practice if any thing available.
    Thanks in advance..

    4)Please suggest me the best practice if any thing available.
    Thanks in advance..
    Lets take your question point wise
    1. In place upgrade will take care of all Logins,jobs and other objects. But before running inplace upgrade its advisable to run SQL Server upgrade advisor
    2. Yes you can do it perfectly. As Erland said this will not transfer logins and you might have
    orphaned users
    3. Since Eval edition has expired and if you uninstall it you might loose all data. This is not a correct approach please either do an in place upgrade to licensed version( like developer edition) or first install developer edition and move database by backup
    restore or attach detach method. I would say to use inplace upgrade.
    4 Best practice would be to do an inplace upgrade. Since Developer edition is same as enterprise and Evaluation edition you dont need to worry about features. Just run the Developer edition setup by running setup.exe file and then select maintenance on window
    which pops up in maintenance select edition upgrade and then follow the process to upgrade evaluation to developer edition. Below link would help

  • Unable to add replication feature in sql server 2012 web edition

    Hi All,
    We are using SQL Server 2012, Web edition and when it was installed replication is not an added feature so I tried to add this feature but getting below error.
    Error: There are no SQL Server instances or shared features that can be updated on this computer.
    Description: The version of SQL Server instance MSSQLSERVER does not match the version expected by the SQL Server update. The installed SQL Server product version is 11.1.3000.0, and the expected SQL Server version is 11.0.2100.60
    And also please let me know how to identify the default file location of the setup file 'setup.exe' for SQL Server 2012 (Webedition, 64bit) Grateful to your time and support.
    I'm using "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\110\Setup Bootstrap\Update Cache\KB2777772\QFE\setup.exe" to add replication feature, please correct me if I'm wrong.
    Thank You.
    Regards,
    Kalyan
    ----Learners Curiosity Never Ends----

    It looks like you are trying to add Replication Components, however, you are using the Cumulative update package 5 setup, which is wrong.
    Note that you will not find the setup file for SQL Server on your file system, it will be on your installation media.
    To install SQL Server Replication Components, locate your installation media and run Setup.exe.  Select the add features to an existing instance option, select your instance, and add replication components.

  • SharePoint 2013 Enterprise and SQL Server 2012 Standard edition vs. Enterprise - feature question

    I can't seem to find any clear answers to the implications of installing SQL Server 2012 standard edition vs. enterprise in regards to SharePoint 2013. 
    I understand that to get many of the features you need Enterprise edition of SQL 2012; but, what I can't figure out is if the backend SharePoint SQL 2012 is standard; but, the PowerPivot/SSRS server is Enterprise will we still get the features?
    If we have 3 tier SharePoint farm, one of those tiers is for the SQL Server database backend.  If that SQL instance is 2012 standard and we add another server to the farm w/ SQL 2012 Enterprise to handle the tabular models, PowerPivot, and SSRS in integrated
    mode will we still get the features?
    Or, can we (should we) install Enterprise 2012 as the SharePoint database backend and let that instance triple down as also the PowerPivot and SSRS instance?

  • Link to download Sql Server 2012 "Standard Edition"

    We have purchased Sql Server 2012 “Standard” edition license. Looking for the link to download of installation software for 2012 “Standard” edition. Have tried
    a lot but could only found - the “enterprise” evaluation copy.
    Looking for urgent help on this. Thanks.

    Thanks for the update.
    1. Would like to check if it is possible to download Sql Server 2012 “Standard" Edition straight away rather than doing a two step install?
    2. Assuming we do a two step install - during upgrade once we specify the license key, would it ask whether we need to change edition to standard/ enterprise or it automatically determines the edition based on the value of the license key?
    Hi,
    1.Do you have MSDN subscription ? You can download from MS link directly if you have one. Please ask the vendor who provided you with License he would be best person to call.
    2. On license page you just have to enter license key that's it , after that SQL Server just knows what it has to do. It does not asks you anything about license it just proceeds
