Unable to open sql_engine_core_inst.msp when installing HPCPack_Express RRS feed

  • Question

  • OK, taking a look at the newly released 2008 R2 HPC edition and am trying to install the HPCPack_Express on a fresh 2008R2 server.

    The install chugs through but fails at the SQL Server 2008 SP1 install step.

    Logs show (and manual attempts also) a failure to open the sql_engine_core_inst patch file included on the ISO

    Anyone else having the same issue and maybe know of a quick fix before I go off and install SQL as a pre task?

  • OK, my bad. The pre install of SQL Server did the trick but seems my ISO image was corrupt/incomplete. Repeated the full exercise with fresh ISO and no issues.
