Too Many Installations - Can't Create DB "outsystems"

Too Many Installations - Can't Create DB "outsystems"

  
Symptom: The OutSystems Platform Community Edition fails to install stating that “The Configuration Tool failed with error code 18”, “oustsystems database could not be created”.

Cause: Each time we try to install the OutSystems Platform Community Edition and the installer founds a previous catalog named “outsystems”, “outsystems_”, or “outsystems__”, (...), it tries to create a new one adding one (more) underscore (“_”) to the catalog name. After some iterations we will reach the maximum catalog name length (128 characters) and we won’t be able to create a new database.

Resolution: Manually delete the “outsystems” catalogs on SQL Server Management Studio.

  1. Open SQL Server Management Studio

  2. Under “Object Explorer” locate the “outsystems” (or “outsystems_”, “outsystems__”, …) catalogs and delete them.

  3. Re-run the OutSystems Platform Community Edition installer.
