Hi Experts!

I'm having trouble with error 15401 in SQL Server 2012. I think this solution kb 324321 is not applicable because I tried almost all of the solutions given.

The question is, is there anyone experienced the same?

By the way, I'm using Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 with SQL Server 2012.

Thanks!

We did further analysis and found few loopholes in the setup such as he did not SYSPREP the base machine Sad smile Well now what? I really can’t suggest him to run SYSPREP again on base machine and re-setup his lab from the scratch.

We looked for NewSID but http://blogs.technet.com/b/markrussinovich/archive/2009/11/03/3291024.aspx says NewSID is already retired and not available for download Sad smile

We had no other option except going for something which is not supported. We looked for archived tools and finally could find NewSID 4.10. We downloaded the tool and ran it on the VM. It gave an option for random SID. We selected that option and allowed the wizard to complete.

Box restarted and the great news, SQL allowed us to create accounts. We realized that this was happening because Duplicate SID of local administrator account which was conflicting with Domain Admin account SID.

Note: One of his standalone machine ended up with BSOD and there he did not have any other option except going for setup again. But 80% of his lab survived.. Smile
