SQL Server Express 2016 Install Fails behind a Proxy

    Question

  • Can't install Server Express behind a proxy.  Is there a way to specify? Get around this? Download actual install media? Below is the log.

    Thank you!

  • This looks like the installed is trying to access the internet and possibly download the latest sp or fixes.

    Are you doing a setup from the command line?  If so are you passing /UpdateEnabled? I think this might be your problem.

  • Hello,

    SQL Server 2016 Express requires .NET Framework 4.6 and is not part of the SQL Server media. An Internet connection is required to download it.

    Make sure you have installed the following update in case the operating system is Windows Server 2012 R2:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2919355


    Then download and install .NET Framework 4.6.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3045560


    Make sure you have enabled .NET Framework 3.5 using Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Turn on/off features.

    Finally try to install SQL again.


    Hope this helps.
