Unable to install an additional Back End RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone

    I need urgent help - been struggling with this for hours and would appreciate if anyone has any ideas

    I'm trying to add an additional back end server to an existing deployment which is a single full server CRM + SQL - the CRM is UR 8. I'm running the installation on the new server (updated the installation files) and choosing to connect to an existing deployment - during setup the installation crashes with the following error:

    Install exception.System.Exception: Action Microsoft.Crm.Setup.Server.InstallConfigDatabaseAction failed. ---> Microsoft.Crm.CrmException: Upgrade failure: Cannot decrease data length,  [Column:'Cookie']

    I'm using a domain admin for the installation and the CRM service account is also a domain admin (this is a DEV environment) i'm also SA on SQL. 

    I have tried EVERYTHING i could think of but I end up with this error every time.

    Any ideas? 


    Please vote if you find my post helpful - Thanks
