SQL Server 2014 installation

Hi,

I am trying to install SQL Server 2014 Standard edition and almost at the end of the process, it returns an error that there is an 'Invalid config file'. Click on ok and then process continues and completes. When reviewing the installed components Reporting Services has failed to install.

Had a look at the MS site but of no help. Has anyone else had this error?

Many thanks

We'll need to analyze the installation logs to try to understand what happened.
They are:
%programfiles%\MicrosoftSQL Server\120\Setup Bootstrap\Log\Summary.txt
%programfiles%\MicrosoftSQL Server\120\Setup Bootstrap\Log\<YYYYMMDD_HHMM>\detail.txt

Where YYYYMMDD_HHMM is the exact date and time of the installation.

Where did you get the SQL Server setup files from?
Looks like it's only the SP1 and not the RTM media file.

Hi,

The install media includes the full setup with SP1.

The install media includes the full setup with SP1.
Like in a slipstream? That's not possible anymore since SQL Server 2012. Now you have the /UPDATESOURCE option where you can indicate the location of the service packs.

If you try installing without Reporting Services it will work?

By the detail.txt the error occurred with Reporting Services:
(01) 2016-08-08 09:27:24 Slp: Invalid config file
(01) 2016-08-08 09:27:24 Slp: Watson bucket for exception based failure has been created
(01) 2016-08-08 09:27:41 Slp: Error: Action "SqlRSConfigAction_install_ConfigNonRC_Cpu64" failed during execution.
(01) 2016-08-08 09:27:41 Slp: Completed Action: SqlRSConfigAction_install_ConfigNonRC_Cpu64, returned False
Where did you get the slipstream from?

From our software repository which is managed by our Tech  guys.
Should I download another file from MS?

I just wanted to know how they slipstreamed it since the configuration is not to use Microsoft Update:
USEMICROSOFTUPDATE="False"
UpdateSource="MU"


My guess is that slipstream isn't working for Reporting Services. You may need to install Reporting Services from another media and apply SP1 later.

Hi,

I have managed to do the install successfully. I used an install package without a service pack, which intalled ok. Then I applied sp 2 successfully.

Thank you for your assistance with this.
