Patch Manager SQL Install Failed with Password Doesn't Meet Requirements Error

Table of contents

Updated 10/10/2017

Overview

This article provides information about what to do when you try to install Patch Manager and your Express Database install fails with an error 0x851a0013: Password doesn't meet password requirements.

Environment

  • Patch Manager 2.1 +

Steps

External Error:  The configuration wizard has failed.

 

Microsoft SQL Server Express installation failed. Details: Unknown Error (0x851a0013)

 

Internal Error (Located in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\Log\Summary.txt): The specified sa password does not meet strong password requirements.

 

If computer is on a domain do the following:  

  1. Go to Administrative Tools / Domain Security Policy :: Security Settings | Account Policies | Password Policy.
  2. Ensure "Minimum password length" and "Password must meet complexity requirements" are set to "Not Defined" state.

 

If your computer is not on a domain do the following:

  1. Go to Administrative Tools / Local Security Policy :: Security Settings | Account Policies | Password Policy.
  2. Turn "Minimum password length" to zero and "Password must meet complexity requirements" to "Disable."

 

This only needs to be disabled long enough for the install to complete. From there you can change the SA password to meet your complexity requirements.
