Replacing SSL Certificates with Built-In Windows Server OS Certificate Binding

If you have an application running on your Windows Server OS that is not using IIS as a front-end, it may be relying on the built-in Certificate Binding in Windows.

In order to check the certificate bindings you can run:

netsh http show sslcert

If you need to update one of the certificates listed here you can run:

netsh http update sslcert ipport= certhash=certhash appid=”{appid}”

Note: ipport, appid will be given to you with the first command to look at the certs, use the values of the current cert that is/was working. Make sure the certhash is the new certificate you want to be used here.

SQL Server Failover Cluster Instance Install Failed Permissions

I’ve seen a lot of posts out there for the error message we had but no actual solutions for our particular issue.

If you are attempting to install a new instance of SQL Server on your failover cluster, do make sure you are not installing into the Root folder of C:\ClusterStorage\<symlink>. You must make sure you create another directory underneath (We disabled inheritance too).

You probably landed here due to Googling this:

The following error has occurred:

Updating permission setting for folder ‘C:\ClusterStorage\<symlink>\Data\MSSQL13.<DBNAME>\MSSQL\DATA’ failed. The folder permission setting we supposed to be set to ‘D:P(A;OICI;FA;;;BA)(A;OICI;FA;;;SY)(A;OICI;FA;;;CO)(A;OICI;FA;;;S-1-5-80-xxxxxxx)’.

Click ‘Retry’ to retry the failed action or click ‘Cancel’ to cancel this action and continue setup.


The resolution to this problem for us was super super simple. We were not running the installer “As Administrator”. If you are running into this issue try running the installer As Administrator.
