Symptoms

When connecting to the Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V or SoftGrid) Management Web Service from the App-V Management Console, you receive the following error message:

Unexpected error occurred.
Please report the following error code to your system administrator.

This can occur if TCP/IP is disabled in SQL Server Configuration Manager under SQL Server Network Configuration on the App-V Database SQL Server.

Resolution

On the SQL Server where the App-V Database resides, launch SQL Server Configuration Manager, navigate and expand the SQL Server Network Configuration node and enable the TCP/IP protocol on the SQL instance that hosts the App-V Database.

On a default install of SQL there will be a Protocols for MSSQLSERVER listed under SQL Server Network Configuration. Highlight Protocols for MSSQLSERVER, right click on TCP/IP in the right hand pane and choose Enable from the Context Menu.

  • We get this error when launching the console logged in as any account that is not the service account.  We are putting the service account username/password in the configuration, but it still fails to launch with the 0000C800 error.  If we log in locally as the service account the console launches fine.  And TCP/IP is enabled on the SQL server.  Any ideas?

  • Hi Clint , have you install Windows authentication for IIS?
