    Resolution

    When installing Microsoft SQL Server in preparation for installing GoldMine, get error that SQL should not be installed on a Domain Controller.


    This error is a result of the operating environment or configuration of the operating system that you are installing Microsoft SQL in and is also the message of the operating system and Microsoft SQL installer. This is not a limitation placed by GoldMine, but rather something which is set in place by Microsoft.
