  • "Error 20010.Failed to configure LookupService" error.
managed to overcome this by creating a single user for RSA database (after executing the createtablespace script).

This user was given db_owner permissions and sysadmin (temporarily) as the installation doc suggests
  • Don't use anything except dots in your admin password as special character and IT WILL WORK
  • If you have the word PORT in any part of your domain name or fqdn for vcenter the installer will throw errors!!! 
  • If you have hyphern "-" in any part of your domain name or fqdn for vcenter the installer will throw errors!!! 
  • try changing the name to an fqdn name.
  • pre-create the tablespace and the users (RSA_DBA and RSA_USER) and let the SSO installation create the tables and schemas during installation
