Trying to install WC10.1 with a remote SQL server.

Trying to install WC10.1 with a remote SQL server.

HI all,

I've been trying to (unsuccessfully) install Windchill 10.1 with a remote SQL server (Standard 2012).

SQL server is installed on \\sqlserver and I've managed to succesfully run PSI on that server with no problems. However when I return to PSI on the \\windchill server to continue to install windchill I run into problems at the "Define Settings" section where it asks for details of the following;

SQL Server Installation Directory:

\\sqlserver\d$\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQK\Binn

SQL Server Client Installation Directory:

\\sqlserver\c$\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\110\Tools\Binn

SQL Server DNS Registered Host Name:

\\sqlserver.our.domain.name

However PSI returns the error "Invalid SQL Server Client install location specified" and gives me an example path structure, yet I know that sqlcmd.exe IS in the path I provide!!

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for listening!!
