  • Applies to:
  • Virtuozzo containers for Windows 6.0


  • MSSQLSERVER service does not work being installed using a MSSQL Template.
  • Access Denied error can be found in System Eventlog.


MSSQLSERVER security account is missed in the template created by the application template creation wizard, "NT service" account is not added in ACL of sqlserver.exe.

This behavior affects Parallels Windows Containers 6.0 Templates for both SQL server 2008 and 2012, and it is recognized as product issue #PCWIN-19477.


This issue will be solved in one of further product updates.


MS SQL Template should be created with local user account to run MSSQLSERVER service instead of service account which is configured by default during MS SQL installation wizard.
