SQL server whispering in installation process returns empty data with .NET 4.6. You will not receive an error, only  empty data. Microsoft knows of the issue with .NET 4.6 and is working to provide a hotfix for users.


  • .NET 4.6



A known Microsoft issue in .NET 4.6. causes the "discover neighbor computer" method to return empty data.



In the Configuration Wizard, write the whole host name of database server. This resolves the issues until a hotfix is released by Microsoft. Without the whole host name, the .NET method for "discover neighbor computer" returns empty data.
