  • SQL Server 2008 R2 setup failing on SBS 2011 Premium

    Hi

    Trying to install SQL onto a Windows Server 2008 R2 server (both of which were bought as the premium add-on) and I am getting the error that the OS is not supported.

    Some reading leads me to believe this is failing on the SBS Environment check, am I correct to assume that because I am still migrating from 2003 to 2011, this is the reason why it is failing?

    I don't think there is a connection. What does the setup log say?
    TIA

      I'm not quite sure where to look for a more detailed log, but the SQL installer & HTML error report just say it failed on the SBS Environment check...

        Fixed.

        Had some replication issues between the migration and FSMO roles got a bit messed up.

        Also (and more relevant I think) DNS was pointing to the old server!

          So fixing the DNS should be easy. WRT the FSMO roles you can always "seize" them with ntdsutil.

            Even simpler, just rebooted the servers

              Well, that was easy!
              Glad it worked.
              TIA
