    Question

  • Hi,

    System - windows server 2008 SP2 Standard virtual machine with two drives C(windows drive ) and D(complete blank )

    SQL Setup disk -   SQL Server 2012 SP1 English 64 bit Standard Edition

    On Installation wizard cheked Database engine services , Management Tools - Basic ,  Management Tools - Complete and SQL client connectivity SDK . 

    moved with installation wizard as installation and other  folder structure in D drive as much as possible   , rest values default .

    During installation progress a message appeared " A MOF Syntax error occured. "

    After that a status window appears and in list 
    Database Engine Services   -    Failed

    Important  History ,

    I followed above process as it is  on this  virtual machine  executed sucessfully . Due to some issue complete D drive crashed and disappeared  , so i faced above problem when i added space to virtual machine server again as new D drive of same size and again executed sql server setup after uninstall old entries in add/remove program of windows .

    Best Regards ,

    Sukhjinder

  • Hello ,

    First of all thanks alberto and other forum member for reply ,

    I Started from point of analysis from "detail.txt" and tried to installed setup but everytime i got error  as i mentioned above  and now i  just resolved the issue . In the series of analysis events, i came to try a command in windows command prompt .

    Winmgmt /verifyrepository 

    this command resulted "WMI repository is inconsistent" . 

    So to fix this issue i used "Winmgmt /salvagerepository"  and it worked after that Winmgmt /verifyrepository  showed that repository is consistent .

    ( for more information regarding WMI and command please check ,http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa394582(v=vs.85).aspx

    )

    After this i cleaned the sql server files and all rest components  from Add and remove program and re-installed sql server .  It installed with no issues .
