SQL Server Edition is Not Supported On This Operating System

Have you ever seen error like that during install SQL Server on your SBS server or additional SBS premium server (Windows Server Standard with SQL Server edition)? I meet this problem couple days ago when my SAP server going crush for unknown reason.



Now, I have to doing clean install my SAP server because recently the crush impact from bad block on it’s HDD and make it’s partition gone!

Really bad case.

I’m sure. It’s really bad case.

First, like or not, I have to recover important data reside on the HDD then rebuild back the server use new HDD. It’s mean many task should be done, start from install operating system, configure updates, RAID, also network and SAP. More than that, I must doing that task alone without even single person can help me. Yeah, I supposed to be grateful being single fighter as System and Network Engineer here. Because some cases like this make me rack one’s brains.

Okay, lets back to the main topic.

There are many solutions for that problem I found on the internet. Such as login with Domain Admin rights until server must be added as member Server on SBS domain. Those solutions work for others but for me it’s not. So, I keep searching within very limited time for rebuild my company’s server.

Finally, I found article (here –read last post with mark as answer) and it’s worked for me! Smile

Just do this solution using domain admin rights and your problem will solved flawlessly.


Thank you Susan!
