Hello,

When I try to install Intel EMA on Windows Server 2022, I encounter the following error. Thanks for you help:

Hi MG62,

 

the root cause is in your first error message, visible and shining there .... OS language version.
Currently Intel EMA does not support internationalization - EMA server OS must be native US -English (see release notes and prerequisites in EMA server installation guide.

Installing US English language pack will not solve it as some of files & folders & build in user names are language specific  so EMA Installer will fail or even worse EMA will pretend to install correctly but will not work as expected.

Hello MG62,

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.

 

Did you look at the prerequisites and all the installation instructions before to installing EMA?

 

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000055629/software/manageability-products.html

 

What EMA version are you trying to install?

 

Are you trying to install the EMA server in a VM or a physical server?

 

What SQL version are you using? Did you create the database before to installing EMA?

 

Please share with us the following log:

 

EMALog-Intel®EMAInstaller.txt

 

Note: The file is located in the same folder as the Intel EMA installer (i.e., wherever you downloaded and ran the installer).

 

Best regards,

Hello Victor,

 

Thank you for your assistance.

 

I have obtained all the prerequisites. I attempted to install version 1.12.2.0 on a virtual machine. I installed SQL Server 2022 Express version 16.0.1000.6, and I created the database before installing Intel EMA.

Hello MG62,

 

Thank you for your response.


Please proceed with the following:


1. Uninstall the Intel EMA Server, selecting all options.


2. Ensure that Intel EMA Platform Manager is no longer installed and there is no content in the Intel EMA installation folder (e.g., C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Platform Manager).


3. Re-install the Intel EMA Server.


Best regards,

Hello Dariusz,

 

Thank you for your help and Victor's. Indeed, I had only installed the language pack.

Czesc Dariusz / @Mr_vPro ,

Perfect answer. Why would not you put this information/disclaimer with CAPITAL LETTERs on product page or better in product installer???

What can I do now with Windows Server Core 2022 non-US that has been nearly configured, just Platform Manager does not install? The message is:

Calling custom action InstallerCustomActions!CustomActions.CustomAction.CASetDirectoryPermissions
Action ended 22:24:56: InstallExecute. Return value 1.

I hope you can recommend good/reasonable solution to me, because I am not sure if same Windows Server activation key may be reused after activation on reinstalled Windows Server with different default language.

Not: "scratch server/VM" and reinstall

Install in: VM
OS Name: Microsoft Windows Server 2022 Standard
OS Version: 10.0.20348 N/A Build 20348

Hyper-V Host:
OS Name: Microsoft Windows Server 2019 Datacenter
OS Version: 10.0.17763 N/A Build 17763

SQL server (virtualized too): 15.0.4355.3 on
OS Name: Microsoft Windows Server 2019 Datacenter
OS Version: 10.0.17763 N/A Build 17763

Error message does not suggest there is a problem with OS default language. I think everything configured properly (DB created), just Platform Manager (PlatformManager.msi) consistenly throws same error.

There was Windows Authentication for SQL Server chosen and user who run installation was DB admin.

BTW. SQL Server is installed in non-US Windows VM, database is having default collation non-SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS

Do you have Windows-platform docker images to try software / compare on my own?

Hi,
The good solution is unfortunalely
RTMF.
Information that current Intel EMA version(s) do not support internacionalization and prerequisites for EMA server OS version and language were provided in Intel EMA release notes ( on EMA download Web page) and in EMA documentation ( inside EMA SW installation package or on EMA manuals website).
Unfortunately you will have to install it from scratch on proper version of OS native language.
We do not provide any image for testing.
