I have just installed SQL 2008 Std. Edition on a Windows 2012 Cluster and when I open SQL Server Configuration Manager and go to "Sql Server Services" I get all the time: "The server threw an exception 0x80010105"
I have tried reinstalling SQL 2008, granting elevated permission to SQL account, installing latest CU for SQL 2008 and nothing seems to work.
I've seen in the forums that the issue also happens in SQL 2008 R2: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqlkjmanageability/thread/c3ed656c-8ff0-41cf-af5e-37c8ad5c30cb/
This is important for me, because I need to add traceflag to SQL service. I'm not using any kind of virtualization, it's just a pair of Windows 2012 servers sharing some SAN's disks.
