Administrator credentials error

Apr 23, 2010 at 9:20 PM

I can't seem to find a way to start the script. I have right clicked Launch.bat and choosen Run As Administrator... but it still gives this error. I do not know much about PowerShell scripts so need help.

 I get this error:

- This script should be executed using the Administrator credentials.

BTW I am trying to run it on the following Hyper-V image:

Windows server 2008 R2 setup as a Domain Controller
SQL Server 2008 sp1

Hi, I have not tried your latest release but I suspect I would get the same problem. I am stuck on this and can not get further.

You shouldn't need to right-click and 'run as administrator'. First, I'd recommend turning off User Access Control at least for the time being (in case that's the problem). Next, make sure you log on to the server using the same credentials (in the format DOMAIN\username) that you've specified in the <FarmAcct> portion of the SetInputs.xml file, and run the script again.

Hope this helps,
