Installing SQL Server 2017 Standard on Windows 2016 and hitting errors when entering the new service accounts for SQL agent, service, SSIS.
'The RPC Service is unavailable, Click retry the failed action'
At the bottom of the installer page it complains that the user accounts are invalid. I know the AD accounts work and can log into the windows server as the service accounts.
My network admin forced me to enable WINS on this server and it now works, does anyone know why or what could be being blocked as the server is behind a firewall but the local firewalls are turned off.
