Installing Deployment Solutions 7.1
I installed the trial version of DS 7.1 this past summer and was pleased with how it worked (A little quirky but nothing to terriable) so we went ahead and bought licenses for DS for Clients.
I competely wiped the server I had it installed on to start from scratch (I prefer doing a production machine this way to get rid of any possiable legacy issues) but I am now having major issues trying to install the software packaged.
Server is Win2K8 R2 with SQL server 2008SP1 installed
I went to Symantecs website and clicked on the link to download Deployment Solutions for Clients 7.1 and let it download the latest version of the SIM. Once SIM is running I don't see Deployment solutions for Clients anywhere in the list of products I can download. I turned off all the filters. I decided to try downloading Deployment Solution Complete Suite to see if that included the Deployment Solution for Clients (If it does it would be VERY helpful to document that SOMEWHERE) Is this what I need to install??
I went thru the system check and made sure everything I needed to have installed was installed (All green and happy) but when I try to install the DS Complete suite I get an error saying that it's installed but not configured properly (Could be the SQL server) I may need to manually configure it.
The SQL server is up and running just fine. I am sure there is something that I am just missing (It's basically a default install of SQL server) I can't find anything that will allow me to configure it manually or any logs that tell me exactly what the problem may be (I look at the logs but all it says is it can't talk to the SQL server)
Is there an installation walk thru somewhere (With step by step instructions on what needs to be configured and how??)
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated (I feel like I am banging my head against the wall)
