- Your Acronis Management Server database is stored in external SQL server (not the built-in SQLite)
- You launch installation of Acronis Backup 12.5 Build 12730 (or later) to update existing Acronis Management Server.
- Update fails
- Installation log contains the following message:

In build 13160, installer automatically verifies the necessary rights and shows appropriate message in the installer:
Account "domain\user" does not have enough permissions to create databases in SQL Server instance "Server\Instance". Add the specified account to the 'dbcreator' or 'sysadmin' fixed server-role in the SQL server
Acronis Management Server Service user does not have enough rights to create new SQL databases. For successful installation, AMS_user should have admin privileges on SQL server.
Grant 'sysadmin' or 'dbcreator' role to the AMS_User and retry the product update
- Go to Start -> Run -> Ssms.exe (run as Administrator).
- Choose the server with Acronis instance and click on “Connect”.
- Go to Security -> Expand Logins -> double-click on the AMS_user -> Go to Server Roles section and place a check mark on "sysadmin" (and/or "dbcreator") role to add this role to the user.
- Click on “OK”, close the console and install the update.
(if the previous Scenario fail with error – you do not have rights to save the changes or you have no installed SQL Management Studio; instructions are provided for granting 'sysadmin' role, to provide 'dbcreator' role adjust accordingly)
- Create on the desktop a .txt file with following T-SQL-script in it:
Exec master..sp_addsrvrolemember @loginame = 'DOMAIN\AMS_user',@rolename = 'sysadmin'
(where DOMAIN\AMS_user is the user to which you want to grant the sysadmin role)
- Go to Start-> Run- >services.msc
- Find the service SQL Server (<AMS_instance>) (where "AMS_instance" is the name of the instance used for Acronis Management Server database) and stop the service. Stop Acronis Management Server Service as well.
- Go to Start -> Run -> cmd as Administrator
- Type in net start MSSQL$<AMS_instance> /m,
where "AMS_instance" is the name of the instance used for Acronis Management Server database, e.g. net start MSSQL$Instance1 /m
- Type in the following command after
sqlcmd -S <machine name>\<AMS_instance> -i <full path to the SQL script created in step 1>
where "AMS_instance" is the name of the instance used for Acronis Management Server database, e.g. sqlcmd -S TestPC\Instance1 -i C:\scripts\tsqlscript.txt
- Close the cmd window after the script worked (the should be no output), restart SQL Server (AMS_instance), start Acronis Management Server Service.
- Start the installation file under Administrator and install the update
