I am using a vCenter Server 5 with Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise.
I have local MS SQL 2008 R2 Standard version 10.50.2500.0 installed.
Now I want to upgrade from 5.0 to 5.0U1.when I start the Setup and it detects the installed version.
Right at the end of the process there occurs an error:
Error 25004.Setup failed to create the vCenter Server repository.
The vminst.log is attached.
Error 25004: vCenter server upgradation
Have you tried using the domain account for it should work well with that.
In the event that you make the VCenter installation as well as install the DSN using a local account with the following name: VCentervcuser, and the use the following name for the SQL server:SQlServervcuser, making sure that you use the same password for both of them at the SQL login, then it could probably work.
You could also try using the domain accounts. Using local accounts may result to the issue you are getting right now. Try the following:
Rollback and then
Reboot and then
Restore DB from backup
And after that do a reinstallation.
See if everything work fine after that.
