Test environment with 2008 servers set up from an image I've taken of a win 2008 r2 sp1 server. I restore that image to a vmware virtual machine, set up a domain controller and added the service accounts I'm going to use later for my sql 2008 r2 install.
Then I take the same image, restore it to another new virtual machine, rename it, give it a new ip address, reboot, join it to the domain, reboot, and begin the SQL install.
On the Server Configuration step, when I click the account name drop down and pick <<browse...>> It opens the "select user, computer, or group" dialog and I enter in [domain]\[login] for the service account and click "check names". It resolves
that into the "[login] ([login]@[FQDN])" line. I click ok.
I get the "S-1-5-XX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-1104: No mapping between account names and security IDs was done." error.
The frustrating part is if I create a new virtual machine win 2008 r2 server from scratch and start the SQL install and use the same login, no error and I can continue with the install.
I'm stuck, can I not create images and use them in this manner?
