SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Edition - Install Error

Hi,

I having trouble installing a copy of SQL Server 2008R2 Express onto a clean install of Windows Server 2008 R2 (running in Hyper-V).

I get the error "Not all privileges or group referenced are assigned to the caller".

I'm running the install as a domain admin and have disabled UAC. Therefore does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks
Anthony

You apparently need 'SeSecurityPriviledge' rights.  More here: http://www.bradg.co.za/?p=12

(Make certain your domain admin account is becoming local admin on the system... I've seen that blocked before.)

Second possibility -- copy the install files to the local system, and try the install from there.

I've tried the instructions from www.bradg.co.za and I'm running the install files from the local HDD, but still without success.

Also as far as i can tell, the domain admin is a local admin as well, however that said I still get the same error when installing as the local admin.

Any ideas?

Well, we've exhausted the 'easy' possibilities.  There should be setup log files, in %programfiles%\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\Log\*.  (I'm suspicious of the '100' in there for R2, but that's where the documentation says it should be, and I'm not near a machine I can use to double check.)  If you can, attach the most recent set of log files, and we'll see if we can't divine a reason for it's continued orneriness.

Finally got it installed. When I was getting the error is was doing the following:

1. Download the install package from my pc to the desktop of the administrator on the server directly (direct downloads blocked on server).
2. Unblock the new file on the server desktop.
3. Ran installer from the server desktop.

However a slightly different approach got it installed.

1. Downloaded the install package to my PC.
2. Created a new folder on the server system drive.
3. Copied the file from my pc to the new folder on the folder.
4. Ran installer from the newly created folder.

The question still remains why this made a difference but I'm a little happier now :)
