Unexpected Error has occurred. Error is ‘SetParent failed for Database ‘AR633564737049916886′.’

When I was installing the Application Definition Designer, I have got the following wired error message! 😦

The text format of this error message is:

Unexpected Error has occurred. Error is 'SetParent failed for Database 'AR633564737049916886'.' --> SetParent failed for Database '<em>AR633564737049916886'.' --> Failed to connect to server. \BDC. --> An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server..

This  is not even a brief message to understand no? After spending few minutes, I have found the possible causes for this error.

1. Not enough permissions to configure BDC (Business Data Catalog) instance

2. There is no BDC instance on our SQL Server, this means the installation expects the BDC instance to continue.

In my case, I have adequate permissions for BDC, so the problem is 2nd one. If we run the BDCStudioSetup.msi file directly, Instead of running the setup.exe on the “BDC Definition Editor” directory then we get this error! 😦

You can see the complete installation and configuration of Application Definition Designer here.

Happy configuring..! Thanks. R./

    It’s great. For a couple of resanos:1) We are better able to work on developing custom Sharepoint components, templates and work flow scenarios by having a local instance of Sharepoint working on our networkand2) Our company is focusing more on Small Business Server as a solution for some of our smaller clients what better a way to understand it’s true power than by using it yourself for a while. Having access to things like Active Directory, Exchange, Sharepoint, and the remote access tools on a single server is DA BOMB!! Hmm maybe I will put that on our promotional material. Maybe not
