Error: Unable to load rule class 'ASSPIExistingFarmUnconfiguredWarningCheck Error code 0x84BE0004.” while installing the SQL server 2012.


 

How to solve the Error


“Unable to load rule class 'ASSPIExistingFarmUnconfiguredWarningCheck


Error code 0x84BE0004.” while installing the SQL server 2012.


 

I was given a task to install the SQL server 2012 on the machine. I was very enthusiastic in doing the installation. I ignored the fact that my C drive was running out of disk space. As expected the installation failed. The installation was not able to even rollback to the previous state.  I had to kill the installation.



Since the cause for failure was known, I started adding some disk space to the drive on my virtual machine. Also I cleaned up the failed install. Ensured that all the SQL 2012 components were cleaned up successfully.

 

I started with the installation of SQL 2012 once again. Now I faced a new error during the installation as soon I was done with feature selection page and clicked on the next.

I got the following error

 

“Unable to load rule class 'ASSPIExistingFarmUnconfiguredWarningCheck

Error code 0x84BE0004.”

 

Since I had previous experience in troubleshooting the installation issue with SQL server. I started to look into the SQL server setup logs

 

The details.txt showed the following errors

 Now I started to look into what is the rule ASSPIExistingFarmUnconfiguredWarningCheck corresponding to  found this in the SystemConfigurationCheck_Report.htm



ASSPIExistingFarmUnconfiguredWarningCheck
 Checks whether SharePoint is configured, and if not, recommends adding the Database Engine to the installation.
Not applicable
This rule does not apply to your system configuration









Well this check is if sharepoint is configured on the db server. But I do not have sharepoint configured.

I tried to check if anyone else is facing the same issue but unfortunately I was not able find many hits on this. So I started to check what next step to resolve this issue is. I started the SQL server installation and selected the repair

 

I ran through the set up wizard. The fact that the installation was running proves that even though I had removed the components from my server, still there were some left overs which may be due to the low disk condition the rollback my not have happened correctly.

Once the repair completed I was able to run the installation without any issues.
