Current setup: Server 2012 in virtual environment:

  • SharePoint 2013
  • Stand alone version with SQL 2008 R2 Express
  • All updates through windows update are installed
  • All prerequisites installed without issue
  • SharePoint 2013 and updates installed
  • Everything has been run under a local admin account and all files were run as administrator.

I have searched high and low and can not find an answer. Many have referenced the Analytics_*** folder which has not been created yet on the server. Some say it is created in step 8 I am assuming my configuration does not get that far.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. This error/failure has been occurring through two setups.

Some of the error messages...

Any help would be appreciated. I am at a complete loss

here is another workaround for this error, Please make sure the

  • AppFabric Caching Service is running on the SharePoint Server.
  • SQL Server Agent Service is running on SQL server.

After that Run this psconfig.exe -cmd Configdb Create SkipRegisterAsDistributedCacheHost

Sharepoint 2013 Products Configuration Wizard Error : Failed to create sample data

Another thing, i would try to create the config and Admin db via PSconfig like this.

psconfig.exe -cmd configdb -connect -server <Server_name> -database <Database_name> -dbuser <DOMAIN\username> -dbpassword <password>
