identity center install problem: "echo unexspected at this time"

Hello,

I'm trying to install Identity Center on a Win2008 Server with SQL2005 running. After typing "mxmc-install" on the cmd the installation progress starts normally but jumps over the password entry for user sa, showing "--", then showing "Enter password for user mxmc_oper:" but didn't wait for any input showing next "Confirm password for user mxmc_oper:" and then ends with the message: "echo was unexspected at this time." So I can't install the database at all. The "mxmc-test localhost sa" is running normally.

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot.

    "<command> was unexpected at this time" is an error message originating from the .CMD parser (what used to be called the DOS command parser!) So there is some sort of problem within mxmc-install.cmd itself. From where are you executing mxmc-install, and are you able to get a fresh copy via download/cd?

    Karsten,

    Make sure that you are running mxmc-install from the database server. Otherwise the scripts will not execute correctly.

    Hello again,

    thanks for your help. First I hoped Matts idea would solve the problem because I started the script from a open folder on my host. (I'm installing on a virtual machine). But it didn't.

    Then I tried mxmc-xinstall with given prefixes. That worked for me.

    So the problem isn't really solved. I also think it must be something wrong with the script file.

    Greetz, Karsten

    Hi,

    I had the problem on Windows Vista which is not supported. Never had the problem with XP. Did you use Vista?

    Cheers,

    Kai

    I had the same Issue with mxmc-install.cmd.

    So i did it with mxmc-xinstall.cmd with the default prefix mxmc.

    My environment:

    Virtual Machine

    MS Server 2008 R2 Enterprise x64

    MS SQL Server Standard 2008

    But at the end of the script i get the following:

    • Update 517 installed

    • Start installing update 518...

    • Update 518 installed

    Creating stored procedures

    Cannot grant, deny, or revoke permissions to sa, dbo, entity owner, information_

    schema, sys, or yourself.

    Cannot grant, deny, or revoke permissions to sa, dbo, entity owner, information_

    schema, sys, or yourself.

    Done creating stored procedures

    Installing HR sample data

    HR sample data installed

    Creating objects

    Done creating objects

    Result saved in mxmc_logfile.log

    Anyone else got the same problem?

    Thanks in advance.
