Description

When installing SQL2014, virtual accounts can be specified for most services. However, DRU Client does not allow a virtual account (eg NT SERVICE\DRUClt), and gives an error saying the password is missing.

DRU Client will accept the Network Service account (NT AUTHORITY\NetworkService), and should also accept a virtual account.

Detail.txt file showing install process and error given will be attached.

Thank you for reporting this issue. Unfortunately, this behavior has not changed since previous releases and we will not be fixing it for our current release.

Thanks,
Jill
