I am trying to resolve the 4gb limitation of MSQL Express. I upgraded to MSDE Express R@, supposed ot now be 10GB limited. MY Sharepoint Search is stopped as result of 4gb limit. I have recreated the application and verified correct DB size but still same error.
Yeserday I found this could be avoided using RBS. Installed the various componet of RBS. Tried the command line for RBS but cannot see my SQL server instance name, tried all variations of the name. If I run the RBS_amd64 GUI install it works for my WSS_Content but my search db's are other names and when i try install enable RBS on them it fails.
Some of the errors
The installer has encountered an unexpected error. The error code is 2769.
Remote Blob Storage on the database has failed with error message:
A network-related or instance-specific error
for DBInstance have tried "sharepoint", "servername\sharepoint" with quotes, without them etc.
any help appreciated.
