SQL Server 2012 – Setup account privileges

Encountered a strange issue today, installing SQL Server 2012 on Windows Server 2012 and received the following condition during the Setup Support Roles.

Setup Account Privileges – Failed.

That’s weird, I’m an Administrator on the server (of course :). Checked the status link for more detail, received this dialog.

This gave me the clue that it was likely a local policy issue.

Found and applied the advice in this article:

SQL Server installation fails if the Setup account does not have certain user rights

From <https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2000257>

Done, installation completed successfully.
