  • Virtuozzo containers for Windows


It is not possible to install Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2/2012 inside a container, the installation produces the error:

The driver has been blocked from loading


Filestream driver is not allowed to be run in containers by default. The issue will be fixed in scope of the request with internal ID PCWIN-18834.


There are two possible solutions:

  1. Contact Odin Support in order to allow the driver to be loaded inside containers.

  2. Disable Filestream feature, if it is not required. For that purpose, on the stage of components selection for SQL installation, on Filestream tab, deselect "Enable FILESTREAM for Transact-SQL".
