Issue/Introduction

I am doing a new WAAE install on 3 new azure 2016 windows servers and am receiving an error when I complete the info for the DB name part of the install.

I tried rebooting the machine but received the same error message.

Error: could not locate osql please check your Path or MSSQL installation

Environment

Release : 11.3.6

Component : WORKLOAD CONTROL CENTER

Resolution

The error : "Error: could not locate osql please check your Path or MSSQL installation"

is typically is accurate in that the osql.exe binary is missing or not in your PATH.

You should re-confirm you can issue osql.exe from a command line on the system you are installing on and connect to the target SQL server db.
