SuccessMaker Again ! (or SuccessMaker Migration 2 - VM trouble !)
As per my other thread in BTRD about annoying things you did today,
I am seeing a massive issue at the moment with a successmaker migration on our site, I am going from a 2003 R2 server to a Hyper-V based Server 2008 R2 VM and am having major problems with getting the database started on the new VM and its this awful Sybase SQL stuff.
I have followed the 1.7.2 SP1 instructions on the RM page to the letter on this new installation before transferring the database over, its a standalone server installation and so far I have seen pretty much everything listed on the RM page as a "Possible Issue" has happened as well on this server, in that content stuff wont install and the database refuses to start, despite me disabling and stopping the old DB and physically shutting that box down and working through all solutions featured.
I have searched google and both the RM and Pearson support sites and have tried all the different trouble shooting for the problem today, the logging shows that its basically a permissions issue with the database directory that is stopping it from starting as the SYSTEM user cannot read or write in the SME\ResultsManager\SuccessMaker\database directory, this is despite me setting the permissions for SYSTEM absolutely everywhere with the share even on the specific directory in 2008 R2.
Has anyone else come managed to get SuccessMaker working a 2008 R2 VM like this ? has anyone else ever had a problem with this folder not having permissions and overcome it ?
I have even tried things not on the list here, like completely remaking the share, manually setting permissions on all the directories and even starting again from scratch to no avail so far.
