BCC Web setup error +Failed to create user due to invalid password

Jun 20, 2012 at 11:48 PM

Hi i keep getting the above error when trying to run the web setup installer

i have followed teh install doc and setup the application pool in the IIS server, but when running the msi on any database i get the "Failed to create user due to invalid password (-2147022651 bcc )

Please advise how i can get around this error.

I have verified the user running the installer is a local admin and has access to create databases and is a sysadmin

You must run the BCCWebSetup as Administrator from the commmand line

1. Start > Run > type cmd (This is must be run using Administrative priviledges)

2.  From the command line execute BCCWebSetup.msi [C:\> BCCWebSetup.msi]

Please let me know in case you see any issues.

Thank you for using BCC.


Workaround: Create an empty database with the name "BCCDB" and try to override it during setup. This will work for sure.
