OCS Installation Failure RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am getting this error attempting to install ocs:

    [0xC3EC7840] Failed to create SQL database. This could be due to lack of file system permissions for the SQL Server service account or insufficient disk space.

    There is plenty of space and the sql services launch with domain admin privileges.  Any help would be appreciated.  The sql 2005 server is not on the same host as ocs.  Thanks.

  • Is this a standalone SQL server or a cluster?

  • Hi,

    I also ran into the same issue, if finally turned out that the disk where i was placing my transaction logfiles like "D:\RTC Data\", "D:\RTC Shared Log\" etc. were on a compressed drive (for each drive you have an option to compress data to save space). Once i unchecked the compress option, everything worked fine.
