Installing Call Quality Dashboard 2019 problems

    I am trying to install Call Quality Dashboard 2019 on a Windows Server 2016 Datacentre and SQL Server version 2016.  Skype for Business Server 2015 is the version of Skype we are using.

    However I am having problems trying to install CQD, it seems to fail on creating the agent job on the QoE archiving databases step, everything else seems to have been created fine.

    In the Event Viewer I see Event Ids for event 1033 and 11708.  Event 1033 states this – ‘Installation success or error status: 1603.’

    I try to run the installer again generating a verbose log file searching in the log for ‘return value 3’ and in the log just before this I see this error –

    Calling custom action CallQualityDashboardCustomActions!CallQualityDashboardCustomActions.ArchiveCustomActions.CreateArchiveJob

    Exception thrown by custom action:

    System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. ---> System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: The current transaction cannot be committed and cannot support operations that write to the log file. Roll back the transaction.

    The logon I am using in the Install is a domain logon that has sa rights over the SQL Server and Admin rights on the Server so should beallowed to do pretty much whatever it wants.  I am at a loss as to what to try next.

    Did a quick google of the error message and found this forum post:

    Here, the problem was with permissions.

    I also found this post:

    which to me sounds like a space issue.  Are any of your databases, logs or disks full?

    I thought it may be permissions, but I gave the install domain account sysadmin over the SQL Server and admin on the server so it should be able to do practically whatever it wants.

    There is plenty of space on all drives on the Server.

    I did have concerns about CQD 2019 being compatible with SQL Server 2016, as per The Microsoft website -

    But I have spent a couple of hours working with a Microsoft expert and asked and he said 2016 would be fine, but I have my doubts going by the documentation.  Despite spending a couple of hours with the expert we were unable to fix the problem.
