Today we are trying to install SQL Server 2012, we are getting Rule ‘Setup Account privileges’ Failed error. In this article I will explain how to resolve this issue.
When i clicked on ‘failed’ hyperlink , hear the message.
The account that is running SQL Server setup does not have one are all of the following Local group policy permissions.
- Back up files and directories.
- Debug process.
- Mange auditing and security log.
So i added the user to this group.
Step 1: Click Windows key+R > gpedit.msc > click OK
Step 2: Navigate to Local Computer Policy > Windows settings > Security Settings > Local Policies> User Rights Assignment
Step 3 : Click Back up file and directories > add the user to this group> Apply> OK.
Step 4: In the same location locate ‘Debug programs’ > add the user to this group> Apply> OK.
Step 5: In the same location locate ‘Mange auditing and security log’>add the user to this group> Apply> OK.
Step 6: Log off the system and login. Now Try again and installation completed successfully.
