I am trying to install backup exec 2010 on a windows 2003 sp2 domain controller. The first time I installed it on a domain controller with the same os, it worked without a hitch. The installation of backup exec fails with error 1603 and the symantec article directed me to install sql manually from the backup exec cd. I am trying to to that but I am getting the following error:
Failure creating local group SQLServer2005MSSQLServerAD
I understand that the domain controller does not have local groups and this may be the problem and after reading the following:
I have created the groups listed in AD and added the account i want to use as the service account to the groups. I am still getting the same failure.
Can anyone please tell me how to get around this? It really did install the first time on a machine that was a domain controller!
Thanks for any help at all,
