I've upgrade from 2012 to 2013 but when I want to install the Vault Server 2013 an error message appears:
Failed connecting to SQL Server –
I've appreciate if anybody can help me.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Solved! by cabuitrago. See the answer in context.
I've installed the Autodesk Vault Server 2013 from the internet and the error has been solved. I think that some files were missed on the initial download.
2 things to check:
Can you check that SQL is actually running and secondly you will need to make sure that if you have changes the sa password this is modified during the install settings.
If you have the SQL Management Studio installed this is easy to test.
Start a CMD on the server and enter the command
Then try again to connect from the Vault client.
If it doesn't works, check your Default Web Site : you must have only one Default Web Site. (problem occurs on French OS in my experience)
I have a clean backup. So, I've uninstalled everything about the old adms 2012, SQL server to make a clean installation.
I also have ran the "Scripttool.exe" and solved some errors but still have one that I can´t solve. Please see the attached image.
Message: "Checking ASP Status The given path's format is not supported."
I've tried to install the Vault server on another machine and here comes again the ASP message with a variation. Pleas see the attached image.
If you attempt to browse to the location listed in the link, does the file exist? Based on this error and the one you mentioned above, I am thinking that there is something wrong with the media. But, let's make sure that is the case.
Yes. The files are in the media but with a little difference in the path.
The setup ask for:
D:\INVENTOR 2013\x64\ADMS\Program Files\Autodesk\ADMS 2013\Tools\TestASPNet.msi
instead the "TestASPNet.msi" files exists in:
D:\INVENTOR 2013\x64\en-US\ADMS\Program Files\Autodesk\ADMS 2013\Tools\TestASPNet.msi
The variation in the path is the "en-US" folder.
So. I've decided to copy the files into the path asked for the setup and now I got the nex message:
I am making the assumption that this might be a download. Where was the source? Unfortunately, we have 3 different ways that someone can get the Vault. Also, are you using an English OS or a different language? I would like to reproduce the issue here to help better explain a solution.
In fact. The machine has an Spanish OS, and the install media is an english version. The media was downloaded from the upgrade link of the e-mail sent by Autodesk. So, I´ve installed the Suite for inventor but still I can´t setup the Vault server.
