SCSM 2012 SP1 in a LAB – Installation (Part D – Install SQL Server)

Recommended Posts

Install SQL Server

At this point, since we will be installing SQL Server on the same server that we will be installing our System Center product, it is expected that you have the VM created, the OS is installed, the appropriate networking has been configured, and it is joined to your lab domain.

 

To avoid a specific installation error (see the end of the Install SQL Server section), you have to install the .NET Framework 3.5. So we’re going to complete this first before we start the installation of SQL.

.NET Framework Installation

To install the specific version of .NET that we require (version 3.5 in this case), start by launching the Server Manager, and selecting Manager > Add Roles and Features.

On the Add Roles and Features Wizard, read the information on the Before You Begin screen, and then click Next.

post-20464-0-94044000-1373772857.png

On the Installation Type screen, select ‘Role-based or feature-based installation’, and click Next.

post-20464-0-90838900-1373772860.png

On the Server Selection screen, since we are installing SQL on the same server as Orchestrator, ensure that it is selected, and then click Next.

post-20464-0-93623800-1373772862.png

On the Server Roles screen, we are not installing a Role, but rather a Feature, so just click Next.

post-20464-0-89166300-1373772864.png

On the Features screen, select .NET Framework 3.5 Features, and click Next.

post-20464-0-77290100-1373772866.png

Since in Windows Server 2012 the .NET Framework 4.x is the main framework, the OS installation does not contain the source files for this installation. Therefore, you will need to click on the ‘Specify an alternate source path’ link at the bottom of the dialog.

post-20464-0-36907500-1373772868.png

You will need to provide the path to where the source files are. This is found within the installation media of Windows Server 2012. If you insert a DVD or mount an ISO, specify the path to the SxS folder (i.e. D:\Sources\SxS), and then press OK.

post-20464-0-88710400-1373772869.png

Click Install, and once it has completed, click Close.

SQL Installation

Start by either extracting or mounting the SQL Server ISO, and run the setup.exe. In this example, we are installing SQL Server 2012 SP1.

On the main installation screen, click on the Installation link on the left pane.

post-20464-0-35025400-1373773191.png

From the Installation screen, click the ‘New SQL Server stand-along installation or add features to an existing installation’ link.

post-20464-0-78308600-1373773194.png

This is initiate the installation. First, the Setup Support Rules will check for any issues. As long as there isn’t any ‘Failed’ issues, click OK to continue with the installation.

post-20464-0-49178100-1373773198.png

Next, enter your product key or select the evaluation copy to install, and press Next.

post-20464-0-68064800-1373773201.png

Accept the License Terms and choose if you will send usage data to Microsoft, then press Next.

post-20464-0-79642700-1373773206.png

If you have an Internet connection, the installer will check if there are any applicable updates to the installation, and will download the updates to use during the install. Click Next.

post-20464-0-71704100-1373773210.png

The Setup will perform another Setup Support Rules check. As long as there are no Failures, you can click Next.

post-20464-0-10047500-1373773216.png

Next is the Setup Role. For our needs, we will choose ‘SQL Server Feature Installation’, then press Next.

post-20464-0-07776300-1373773220.png

For the Feature Selection, select the following (depending on which Service Manager component you are installing), and then press Next.

SCSM Management Server:

  • Database Engine Services
  • Full-Text and Semantic Extractions for Search
  • Management Tools – Complete (Optional)

 

SCSM Warehouse Server:

  • Database Engine Services
  • Full-Text and Semantic Extractions for Search
  • SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS)
    • Collation: SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS
  • SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS)
    • Collation: Latin1_General_100_CI_AS
  • Management Tools – Complete (Optional)

post-20464-0-80078200-1373773224.png

The Installation Rules will run to determine if anything will block the SQL installation. If there are no Failures, click Next.

post-20464-0-97842500-1373773226.png

Next we will configure the instance. You can choose either to use a Default instance, or a Named instance. In this example, I will use a named instance, so as to not get this installation of SQL mixed up with any other I will have in my lab. Make your applicable choice, and click Next.

post-20464-0-05800800-1373773360.png

The setup will check and confirm there is enough space on the drive for the installation. If everything is reported as OK, click Next.

post-20464-0-50998700-1373773363.png

You next have to configure the server, which includes the Service Accounts and Collation.

In Production, it is best practice to have a separate account for each of the services. In our lab, we will leave everything at defaults, with the exception of changing the ‘SQL Server Agent’ startup type from ‘Manual’ to ‘Automatic’. After you have completed this, don’t click Next, but rather click on the Collation tab.

post-20464-0-54287700-1373773365.png

On the Collation tab, you will need to click the Customize button to be able to change it appropriately.

post-20464-0-91960200-1373773367.png

On the Customize dialog, select ‘SQL collation, used for backwards compatibility’.

post-20464-0-69354500-1373773369.png

Within the list, find ‘SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS' and select it, then click OK.

NOTE: If you are changing the Collation for SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS), then use 'Latin1_General_100_CI_AS' Collation.

post-20464-0-30649300-1373773371.png

You will be back on the Server Configuration dialog, click Next.

post-20464-0-45025500-1373773373.png

On the Database Engine Configuration screen, leave the Authentication Mode at ‘Windows authentication mode’. What do have to change is to add SQL Server Administrators. Click the Add button.

post-20464-0-57664300-1373773375.png

On the next dialog, you will need to add either the user(s) or security group(s) you want to have administrator access to SQL. At a bare minimum, add the current user account, so that you can log into SQL Server. Add the user(s)/security group(s), and click OK.

post-20464-0-08267600-1373773377.png

You will be back on the Database Engine Configuration screen, and your accounts will now be present. In my example, I have an Active Directory Security Group I specifically created for SQL Administrators. Then click Next.

post-20464-0-72886900-1373773379.png

You can choose to send Error Reporting information to Microsoft. Make your choice, and click Next.

post-20464-0-30326600-1373773492.png

The setup will now re-check the configuration rules, based on the selections and information that has been supplied. If it passes, click Next.

post-20464-0-78673200-1373773495.png

Review the information on the Ready To Install screen, and then click Install.

post-20464-0-38515000-1373773498.png

Note: during the installation, you may encounter the following error message. This is due to not having the .NET Framework 3.5 installed prior to attempting to install SQL Server. If you encounter this, cancel the SQL server installation, and install the .NET Framework 3.5 (which is an available feature within Roles and Features).

post-20464-0-22469100-1373773504.png

You may have to wait a while for the Installation Progress to complete.

post-20464-0-27762200-1373773500.png

On the Complete screen, click Close.

post-20464-0-64293500-1373773502.png

Congratulations, you now have SQL Server installed and are finally ready to install System Center Service Manager (SCSM).

Never thought I would start answering questions for SCSM... Please provide more information. The specified error sounds like either a not installed or not configured SQL Server Reporting Services.
