Overview

If you installed a SQL Server database on the Orion server and subsequently removed it, some Orion modules (Information Services, Collector Services, Job Engine v1 and v2) continue to track dependency on the local SQL Server. As a result, after uninstalling the local SQL Server, when you attempt to run the Configuration Wizard, this ConfigurationWizard.log error appears:

System.InvalidOperationException: Service MSSQL$ was not found on computer '.'. ---> System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: The specified service does not exist as an installed service

Environment

All Orion products

 

Cause 

This situation most commonly occurs if you install the SQL Server Express during evaluation of Orion software but deleted SQL Server. For example, in the processing to converting the server into a production Orion server aimed at a remote SQL Server database.
