SCSM: Database installation fails

Issue: SCSM Management Server fails on “Install Database” step with the following error:

An error occurred while executing a custom action:_CreateDatabase This upgrade attempt has failed before permanent modifications were made. Upgrade has successfully rolled back to the original state of the system. Once the correction are made, you can retry upgrade for this role.


Resolution: I am using Hyper-V VMs with dymnamic disks. Microsoft mentioned in the setup documentation that dynamic disks are not recommended by performance reasons, but I did not see direct statement I cannot use them Smile

Anyway – as soon as I changed Dynamic disk I used for database location to a Fixed disk the issue disappeared.
