Installation of HPC Pack 2016 Update 2 fails at SQL Express RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm running six VMs with Windows Server 2016 Datacenter on different servers. To combine their compute power for simulations with Ansys, I want to connect them using HPC Pack 2016 Update 2 v6277.

    The following error occures on every single instance, no matter which of those 6 VM's I choose.

    During the installation of HPC there is a step when SQL Server 2016 Express is getting installed. Until there everything is running fine. But the installation of SQL always is aborted with the message:

    "Component Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Express cannot be installed with error code 1009. Die Datenbank der Konfigurationsregistrierung ist beschädigt."

    The second sentence translates to "The database of the configuration registry is corrupted".

    Yes, there really is a mix of English and German there, probably because it's a german Windows installation.

    Does anybody have a idea how to handle this error? There is no further information given, and I can't find anything on the internet regarding this error message...

    Kind regards,

  • No issue when I install HPC2016UPDATE2. Suggest to download and install SQL 2016 express first then install HPC pack 2016. This is not fix but work around so you can make progress.

  • You can manually install SQL server on the head node first, and then install HPC Pack 2016, the setup wizard will detect the existing SQL server instance.
