SCCM2012 Setup SQL Error

Hi,

I am installing SCCM2012 on Windows 2012 server, during the installation when I have to define the SQL server name and DB name, if I choose our SQL server which is running SQL 2014 on a separate server, it gives the error attached.
I am using my admin account to install, anything I have to do different here?

Thanks.

I have created sysadmin account, and on SQL server i have run this command  to give it permissions;
Sorry, that's not clear to me.
If you created the sysadmin account that mean you already gave it the sysadmin privileges, right?
So why to you need to run another command to give the permissions?
If you didn't give the sysadmin role then the correct command is:
EXEC sp_addsrvrolemember 'Domain\username', 'sysadmin'; 

Open in new window

There is no attachment. That said, does your admin account have admin permissions on the SQL Server instance you're trying to install to? Local Admin privileges on the SQL server aren't enough to be able to create new databases in SQL Server. Your account has to be granted privileges in SQL server to create DBs.

so would this command will give me the permissions on SQL to create DBs?

EXECUTE sys.sp_addsrvrolemember
    @loginame = N'Domain\username',
    @rolename = N'dbcreator';

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I think SCCM requires an user account to be sysadmin of the SQL Server instance. Did you create the necessary login in the SQL Server instance side?

would that do the job?

this is the error message
"Either the user account running Configuration Manager Setup does not have sysadmin SQL Server role permissions on the SQL Server instance selected for site database installation, or the SQL Server instance could not be contacted to verify permissions. Setup cannot continue."

I gave sysadmin account domain admin privileges.
I will run the command you suggested, do i have to run that in powershell?

This is all SQL Server. Do not make confusion with other things.

"Either the user account running Configuration Manager Setup does not have sysadmin SQL Server role permissions on the SQL Server instance selected for site database installation, or the SQL Server instance could not be contacted to verify permissions. Setup cannot continue."

With that said you'll need to run the command inside the SQL Server Management Studio.

Apologies for late reply, got really busy with one critical project.

I have run the command under SQL which you suggested, didn't make any difference, do I have to run it against particular DB?

I have attached a screenshot for SQL errors.

The command I posted it says to provide a domain user ('Domain\username'). Which user did you use when you ran the command?

I used  sysadmin or should I use sccmadmin?

Vitor MontalvãoMSSQL Senior EngineerCommented:
sysadmin is correct because it's the server role.
What did you use for 'Domain\username'?

LeoAuthor Commented:
you mean to log in to SQL Server?

Vitor MontalvãoMSSQL Senior EngineerCommented:
So you have a domain called SQL01 and an AD user called sysadmin?

LeoAuthor Commented:
Domain Server name is AUSSQL01 and user is sysadmin

Can you provide a screenshot of that user definition in the Active Directory?

Had to install full version of SQL, only that made it work.
