I did a fresh installation of a SQL Server Standard 2016 on Microsoft Windows Server 2016.
During the installation and manually starting the database engine service i get the following error:
Windows could not start the SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER) service on Local Computer Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
I tried changing the credentials under which the service runs to Local Service, User Account and the Administrator account
manually starting the SQL Server binary (sqlservr.exe) via command line i get the following error:
The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). Click OK to close the application.
The event log has the following event:
Faulting application name: sqlservr.exe, version: 2015.130.1601.5, time stamp: 0x5724ae45 Faulting module name: sqllang.dll, version: 2015.130.1601.5, time stamp: 0x5724aebe Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x00000000016bdc00 Faulting process id: 0x13ec Faulting application start time: 0x01d23f479dbf612a Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL13.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\Binn\sqlservr.exe Faulting module path: C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL13.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\Binn\sqllang.dll Report Id: 05e65b0f-778c-4bb2-8be6-6fcb17b91bf2 Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID:
I tried to do a clean install of the SQL Server, but it results in the same issue.
The ISO we retrieved was corrupt.
After redownloading the ISO and comparing the SHA1 checksums from both ISOs i noticed a difference between them.
Altough the installation went fine.. It seems the installer does not verify itself and the installed files.
Redownloaded the ISOand everything works fine now!
