SQL Disk Space Error Installing SCAC 2012

When installing SCAC (System Center App Controller) 2012 RTM yesterday, I encountered an error at the SQL database definition step “The Specified Database has Insufficent Disk Space”.

Let it be a lesson to us all to properly review the release notes prior to installing products.

SCAC (System Center App Controller) supports the following SQL database servers:

SQL Server 2008 Standard and Enterprise with Service Pack 2
SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard, Enterprise and Datacenter

Suprisingly though, the release note make no mention as to whether service pack levels above those stated are supported (such as SQL Server 2008 with Service Pack 3 or SQL Server 2008 R2 with Service Pack 1). One would assume that they will support any upward versions and that the versions stated as the minimum supported, but you never know?

Typo in SCAC 2012 AppControllerSetupWizard Log

When installing SCAC (System Center App Controller) 2012, you may need to review the installation logs. These are placed in the %UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Temp\AppController\Logs path.

Reviewing the log today, I found a typo in the file. It’s not anything that’s going to effect the installation, but worth noting if you are trying to search the log files for particular keywords.

10:14:02:RemoveConceroRegistry: Removing registry key on rollbak.

This should obviously read rollback not rollbak.
