Symantec new technote ! V-225-302 for BackupExec 2014

Hi everyone! Today I found a new bug and the page at symantec does not exist yet.

I decided to create it for them, as it can be a error other will see. It happened on Windows Server 2012 R2 in case it has an importance.

Note: The log show the link At this time this error is not classified.

Symptom: You install BE2014 on a new system and the installation fail with the error code V-225-302

Error: V-225-302:  ERROR: Failed to install SQL Express BKUPEXEC instance with error -2067922940.

Corrective Step: Pre-install the SQLExpress with the /SKIPRULES=PerfMonCounterNotCorruptedCheck parameter.

– Locate the SQL install string in the error log; it would look like that (see there for the location);


– In my case change the account information, /SQLSVCACCOUNT=”AUTORITE NT\Système” for /SQLSVCACCOUNT=”NT AUTHORITY\System”. A setup error for localisation.

– Add the new command line and launch the full command. From run


– Run and wait, as it will run silent.

– Re-run the BE setup after.

    Thanks! Worked for me. You are correct about it being a silent install. You just have to wait 10 minutes to be safe.

    Thx, same error from BE2012 to BE2015 on Windows Server 2012.
    This solved it.

    How will I know when the SQL server is done installing and do I do a custom install and point to this instance or do I just do the typical installtion?
