account, this error pops up. One of the solutions would be to create a new user with administrator sapwd strong password privileges and assign it with a strong password. Now SQL Server while installing uses this User Account and Password.First step to check while installing MSDE is to extract the sql server 2000 download package. (Just click on the executable and it extracts the setup files to generally C:\FolderName). Now click on the setup.exe that sits in the extracted folder. But before running the setup.exe make sure there are no prior instances of SQL Server MSDE.Now run the following command to install MSDE :Setup.exe InstanceName="NewInstanceName" SAPWD="Password"Here "Password" is the system admin account password or give the password for the newly created user (the user with admin privileges)password. This password is needed only to install MDSE, not to use it. Access to MSDE is controlled by normal "NT Security" which should allow users access based on network logon and password. In case if you want to have the sample databases available with MSDE installation then go ahead and name the instance name as "Thanks for going through the posting.

Guest Guest Hi all, I have Windows XP Pro PC that is linked on Microsoft NT 4 LAN System. I downloaded all the installation files of MSDE 2000 Release A to my C:\MSDERelA forlder. I clicked on the setup.exe (Microsoft SQL Server Setup) in my C:\MSDERelA folder. First, I saw the message "Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine", and then "A strong SA password is required for http://anyitproblem.blogspot.com/2008/06/sql-server-sapwd-error-while-installing.html security reasons. Please use SAPWD switch to supply the same. Refer to readme for more details. Setup will now exist." I am completely lost in this matter of installing MSDE 2000 Release A. Please help and tell me how I can use SAPWD switch to supply the strong SA password during the setup. Thanks again, SHC Guest, http://www.pcreview.co.uk/threads/msde-2000-release-a-how-to-use-sapwd-switch-to-suuply-the-sa-pass.2114075/ Aug 29, 2005 #1 Advertisements David Lloyd Guest The following is from the "sp3readme.htm" file located in the same folder as the setup.exe file. To install a new instance of Desktop Engine 1.. Open a command prompt window. 2.. From the command prompt, use the cd command to navigate to the folder containing the MSDE 2000 SP3a setup utility: cd c:\MSDESP3aFolder\MSDE where c:\MSDESP3aFolder is either the path to the folder into which you extracted the MSDE 2000 SP3a files, or the Desktop Engine SP3a folder on the SQL Server 2000 SP3a CD. 3.. Execute one of the following commands: a.. To install a default instance configured to use Windows Authentication Mode, execute: setup SAPWD="AStrongSAPwd"Where AStrongSAPwd is a strong password to be assigned to the sa login. b.. To install a named instance configured to use Windows Authentication Mode, execute: setup INSTANCENAME="InstanceName" SAPWD="AStrongSAPwd"Where AStrongSAPwd is a strong password to be assigned to the sa login and InstanceName is the name to be assigned to the instance. c..

It must be something like 'computername\imalla' or 'computername$imalla'. You can find this out from control panel and by going to services. Sunday, January 06, 2008 5:35 AM Reply | Quote Moderator 0 Sign in to vote There are 4 services currently seen, as i tried this installation a couple of times. The service names are SqlAgent$Imalla, SqlAgent$Imallaw2 (imallaw2 is my computer name), SqlAgent$VSDotnet, and SqlServerAgent. How do i remove these services to be able to re-try a fresh installation?And also in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Sql Server folder, I see four folders, namely MSSql, MSSql$IMALLA, MSSql$IMALLAW2, MSSql$VSDotnet. I tried to remove all of them to restart a fresh installation, but it gives me err

Loureirot_August 29, 20080 Share 0 0 In SQL Server 2005, we introduced a different method than in previous versions to rebuild system databases (affectionately known as "rebuild master"). You were required to use the setup.exe program with command line switches. This is no different in SQL Server 2008 but the command line switches have changed some and the process behind the scenes to rebuild the system databases (master, model, and msdb) is also a bit different. Currently the SQL Server 2008 Books Online only mention an option for setup called /REBUILDDATABSES (See this link) but this information is not correct so I'll outline how to do this here in this blog post. We will also get our documentation updated to reflect this information. The syntax for using setup.exe to rebuild the system databases is as follows: setup.exe /QUIET /ACTION=REBUILDDATABASE /INSTANCENAME=instance_name /SQLSYSADMINACCOUNTS= accounts [/SAPWD=password] [/SQLCOLLATION=collation_name] Here are the details about how to use this syntax and how it works: 1. Find setup.exe either from your original media or the "local" setup.exe as found in the directory where you have installed SQL Server in the 100\Setup BootStrap\Release directory. So on my machine, I changed directory to C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\Release. 2. Run setup.exe with the following syntax from a Windows command prompt: If you have SQL configured for Windows Authentication Mode use this syntax: setup /ACTION=REBUILDDATABASE /QUIET /INSTANCENAME= /SQLSYSADMINACCOUNTS= where is either the name of your named instance or MSSQLSERVER for the default instance are Windows groups or individual accounts to provision as sysadmin If you have SQL configured for Mixed Authentication Mode use the same syntax except you must also provide the /SAPWD parameter to specify the SA password. If you don't, you will get an error. If you want to rebuild the system databases with a different collation than what you used to install SQL Server, you would need to supply the /SQLCOLLATION parameter. If yo
