I am trying to install SQL Server 2012 Express on a Windows 2012 Server for test purposes. This machine is part of our company domain.
During installation I am trying to use one of domain account for SQL Server Database Engine service but it is failing with following error,
"The SQL Server service account login or password is not valid. User SQL Server Configuration Manager to update the service account."
I have verified both domain user and password. And this account has "Log on as a Service" permission enabled. I have also added this user into local admin group but still no go.
Any suggestion is appreciated.
