Today I’ll talk about an error that can occur when installing the beta of SharePoint 2013.
When running the SharePoint Configuration Wizard Product, it may be that it ends in failure with the following error message:
Configuration failed – Service running under Network Service account not supported
After some research I came across this topic:
To fix the problem, we must start psconfig.exe with the following arguments:
psconfig.exe -cmd Configdb create SkipRegisterAsDistributedCacheHost
To reminder the psconfig is located in the folder « C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\15\BIN »
After completing this command and restarting the Wizard, this time I got the following message:
The SDDL string contains contains an invalid sid a sid that cannot be translated
Well, I have not yet found where it was coming but the central administration finally works! At least we can finally see the new SharePoint looks like!
