PI VISION 2017 - No way to create a new database

Dear all, we are experiencing a very bad impress with the PI VISION 2017 installation as there is no way to create the new database.

We have tried to run directly from a command window as administrator the "go.bat" file but there are always failures indicated in the log file.

I just have to define our deployment environment: a windows 2K12R2 (French) server, and as it is a brand new one, nothing was installed previously.

So we have installed SQL Express instance, then run the PI VISION Setup.

Now the result is :

  • from the PIVISION website admin display, we can see the PI-DA server (connection OK)
  • from the PIVISION website admin display, we can see the PI-AF server (connection OK) and the related databases
  • from the PIVISION website admin display, we can see the SQL server (a local one), but nothing as a valid database for VISION
  • from the PIVISION website admin display, we cannot have information from the webcrawler (red cross)
  • from the PIVISION website admin display, we are still connected to PI VISION Services with default NT AUTHORITY\Network services (but translated in French) instead of the PI VISION service account named ... PIVISION

 

Any help will be welcome, as online documentation seems to be not sufficient for this case (but maybe we miss something???)

 

Let us know,

Thanks a lot
