Action Microsoft.Crm.Setup.Server.AddServerAction failed. Exceeded column length: Column Name RRS feed

  • Question

  • When installing Microsoft CRM 2011, I get the following error:

    Action Microsoft.Crm.Setup.Server.AddServerAction failed. Exceeded column length: Column Name


    Server Software:
    Windows Server 2008 R2 standard
    Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 (Native mode, SRS installed too)

    What can I do to fix this?

    Thanks!

  • I fixed it.  It turns out that my AD domain name was too long.  Once I reinstalled the AD Domain Services with a shorter name, it worked.

  • Hi,

    I actually viewed that and it did not work for me.  Do you have any other solutions?


    Thanks!

  • Hi,

    got sam error. But after "abort" the installation my crm is totaly "broken". There are no links in start menu or dekstop, starting setupserver.exe again do nothing, click on "uninstall/change" in "programs and features" do nothing ???

    So, now i cannot start, repair or uninstall the crm server 2011. What have you done?

    Windows Server 2008 SP2 (x64)

    Microsoft SQL Server 2008 SP3 (x64)
