I just installed SQL server 2012 on Windows 2012 today. After the install, I changed the database settings to create database files in f:\mssql instead of the default. i verified the confired and running values.
Create database fails to create the .mdf and .log files with the following error - Directory lookup for the file "f:\msql\data\test.mdf' failed with os error 5. (Access is denied).
This error occurs when I run sql server service as domain account. The domain account is an administrator and has full control on volume F.
If I run the sql server service as local system, I am able to create the database with mdf files on f:\ drive.
My sysadmin confirms and I have verified that the domain account has full control on f:
I look forward to your suggestions.
