PME 8.2 distributed install fails on 'Configure SQL Server' and 'Verify Databases' steps

Published date: 10 June 2020

Issue
When installing PME 8.2 distributed, the 'Configure SQL Server' step is not successful and the installer stops at 'Verify Databases'. The installation log includes an error such as "Could not deploy package. Missing values for the following SqlCmd variables:LogFilePath".



Product Line
Power Monitoring Expert 8.2

Environment
Software Install

Cause
During the Database Files Destination step, the destination folder selected was at the root of a drive (for example, C:\ as shown below). This is a SQL restriction as SQL data and log files cannot be placed in the root of a drive, because of the way permissions work with regards to the root of the drive compared to its subfolders.



Resolution
Specify at least one subfolder as the location for the database files.
