Error while setting up the Server Farm Account

Hi Experts,

I'm getting an error while setting up the server farm account (Sharepoint 2010).

Sharepoint-2010-Configuration-Error.png
Trying to deploy a single server with SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard. This is not the domain controller.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

SP 2010 has to connect to DB that has collation Latin1_General_CI_AS_KS_WS
As per error, you have Latin1_General_BIN on SQL?

Hi Ivan,

Thanks for your prompt reply.

Can you guide me in resolving the issue as I am new to this?

Is there any possibility to change the Collation?

What will be the side effects if I change the collation in middle?

Thanks in Advance,
Regards,

Hi,

is this new SP installation, and most important, is this lab or production?

Thing is, you can easily change collation on DB (Properties --> Options --> Collation) BUT, if that collation was set that way, for some reason, then something can stop working.

Maybe your Server collation is by default Latin1_General_BIN, and that is why it is that collation setup on SP database?.
Can you go to SQL, right click on serer --> Properties --> and in first windows, grayed out, will be server collation. Is it Latin1_General_BIN?

Hi,

Changing server collation after server installation is not easy task. Seams kinda easier to reinstall server, since you would need to drop all databases, rebuild master db, recreate all db...
Not sure if I would want to do all of that. Maybe you should rethink all of this, or find someone to do it for you.

Guide on how to do it can be found here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms179254(v=sql.110).aspx

Hi Ivan,

I have created new named instance and selected the collation as suggested by you in your first comment.

It's worked for me.

Really thanks,
