Symptoms

Assume that you install Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Remote Blob Store for an additional database on the same instance of SQL Server by using the command line. For example, you run the following command at the command line:

msiexec /qn /lvx* rbs_install_log_2.txt /i rbs.msi REMOTEBLOBENABLE=1 FILESTREAMPROVIDERENABLE=1 DBNAME="Database Name" FILESTREAMSTORENAME=FilestreamProvider_1 ADDLOCAL=EnableRBS,FilestreamRunScript DBINSTANCE="Domain\ServerName"

In this scenario, this installation fails. Additionally, you receive an error message that resembles the following:

RBS Error. Original Error: Number 2601, Severity 14, State 1, Procedure rbs_sp_add_blob_store, Line 64,

Message: Cannot insert duplicate key row in object 'mssqlrbs_resources.rbs_internal_blob_stores' with unique index 'rbs_internal_blob_stores_ix_name'. The duplicate key value is (FilestreamProvider_1).Transaction count after EXECUTE indicates a mismatching number of BEGIN and COMMIT statements. Previous count = 1, current count = 0.

Cause

This issue occurs because the second installation uses incorrect values for variables that are derived from the first installation.

These variables store the FILESTREAM database name and the instance name. During the second installation, the values of these variables are retrieved from the registry and overwrite the values that you define in the command line.
