I am trying to install 6.5 on a new Compaq 6000. It has NT 4 SP4. This is
a new sever and is getting a fresh install. Should not be a problem, right.
I go through the install and enter in all of my required information. This
works fine. It copies the files and starts the install. Sql creates the
master db, creates the entries in the control panel, and then tries to
verify it's state. It stalls here saying, "The SQL Server installation
could not be successfully completed. Setup could not connect to the SQL
Server. OK Exit to WindowsNT." I am using the Administrator login and I
have setup SQL before, on different machines, on this network. I have
verified that the administrator login has all of the proper rights and still
nothing? I am researching this and thought I would see if any of you have
had the same problem before?
I may just be having a brain lapse, but it would not be the first time.
Thanks for your time,
