This may sound like a trivial question but here is what is happening:
- I grab the latest version of Jenkins as native installer for Windows (1.491 in my case)
- I set up a Windows Server 2012 (official release image, no release candidate) and install all updates
- I try to run the Jenkins installation.
Everything is working fine in the installation process except for the part where it tries to start the service. At this point I get informed that I have not sufficient privileges to start system services. This has been working on 2k8R2 without any problems. I am logged on as Administrator which was created during server installation and is the only user on the machine.
The full message I get is:
Service 'Jenkins' (Jenkins) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services.
Is anybody else having these problems? I guess the internals of Server 2012 have changed the way of the installation and the Jenkins installer is not build for that.
If anyone can tell me to which group I have to add the administrator, or can give me a work-around for this problem, this will help a lot.
