CSAMC fails to se 'SA' account password during installation?

Unanswered Question
Aug 21st, 2007


I'm trying to install fcs-csamc- (CSAMC) on a Windows 2003 Standard R2 SP2 server, but the installation routine fails with the error msg "Failed to set the "SA" account password". This server is currently not in any domain and it is a 100% fresh install of Windows and fully updated via MS update...I've also tried on a fresh domain server and the same error. I see in the install notes it requires SP1 (says nothing about SP2 or support for it), but the Server 2003 installation disc we have is SP2 streamlined...so I'm kinda stuck with it.

Any ideas? Thanks very much


I have this problem too.

Try a manual install of SQL 2005 Express before you install CSA. It starts on page 3-20 of the install guide.
