Orchestrator Installation failed: SetWindowsAuthentication

Hi everyone,

I tried installing the Orchestrator, unfortunately during the installation I got an error. After checking the log files, the following error occurs:

=== Logging stopped: 27.09.2018 12:00:11 ===

Or more detailed, the step “SetWindowsAuthentication” fails:

Does anyone have an idea what might be wrong?

Thanks a lot in advance!

On which OS are you running? 2nd were you able to set the domain for the windowsauthentication? Do you have a screenshot on where you fail? Maybe i can try to reproduce the problem, although i dont have any problems on 2012/2016 Windows Systems

Did you check/install all the prerequisites before starting the installation?

The Problem was that the user did not have the right to run as a batch job.
