    Unanswered: MSDE sp3 install problems

    I recently had to install 40 german NT 4 laptops with MSDE sp3.

    I prepared a setup.ini file:
    [Options]
    DATADIR="C:\Programme\Microsoft SQL Server\"
    TARGETDIR="C:\Programme\Microsoft SQL Server\"
    SAPWD="AStrongPwd"
    SECURITYMODE=SQL

    and installed most of them sucessfully. Some of them I installed via network, some of them were installed from CD. I tested each installation by copying a prepared database into the data directory and tried to connect to this database using the specified sapwd and found out
    When i installed from CD, I could connect to the databases.
    Some of the network installs produce a logon failure. it looks like the sapwd was ignored during install - I could not figure out, which password was used, I uninstalled it and reinstalled from CD.

    Does anyone know what's the reason for this behaviour?

    Thanks,

    clothilde

    Get any information from SQLSTP.LOG on those failed installations for this behaviour.
