Errors installing SQL Server 2008 on Windows Server 2008 RC2, Solution

There seems to be a problem when installing SQL server 2008 on a windows 2008 RC2 platform.  Generally it will get stuck, hangs at "Install_sql_is_Cpu65_Action:Write_NativeImage_64" or another place about 3/4 the way through the install process. In some cases this may be a permissions issue and others media read/write issue.

Best solution for this is to copy the entire contents of the install media directly to the HDD and run the installer directly from the hard drive as the administrator directly from console and not from RDP. This seems to solve the problem in all cases so far.

How to recover serveradmin access of teamspeak3/ts3 server after system reload.

This works but you should still stop and backup your ts3 server.

After you backup is complete follow these steps.

While ts3 server is stopped start the server using this command: (assuming you are running 64 bit server on windows)

(Drive):\Path\ts3server_win64.exe serveradmin_password=YourNewPassWord

(You can do this by making a shortcut and editing the target location as well)

Now you have an updated TS3 admin password, with this you can create a new privileged key.

Using puttytel.exe or any other telnet client to type the following commands:

(localhost if your server is hosted on the pc/server you are running telnet on, otherwise just use the ip or server name)

After the last command the server will respond with a token=YourNumbersAndLettersToeknID

Copy this and past it into your TS3 client under permissions > use privileged key.
