You cannot create an Authorization Manager SQL store in a SQL Server 2008 R2 database that has a case-sensitive collation in Windows Server 2008 R2, in Windows 7, in Windows Vista, or in Windows Server 2008

Applies to: Windows Server 2008 R2 DatacenterWindows Server 2008 R2 EnterpriseWindows Server 2008 R2 Standard More

Symptoms


Consider the following two scenarios:

Scenario 1
  • You have a computer that is running one of the following operating systems:
    • Windows Vista
    • Windows Server 2008
    • Windows 7
    • Windows Server 2008 R2
  • You select an existing SQL database to create an Authorization Store in the Authorization Manager.
  • The specified SQL database has a case-sensitive collation.
Scenario 2
  • You have a computer that is running one of the following operating systems:
    • Windows Vista
    • Windows Server 2008
    • Windows 7
    • Windows Server 2008 R2
  • You select a nonexistent SQL database to create an Authorization Store in the Authorization Manager. In this case, the Authorization Manager creates the specified SQL database by using the same collation as the instance of SQL Server.
  • The instance of SQL Server has a case-sensitive collation.
In these two scenarios, the operation fails, and you receive an error message that resembles the following:
Cannot create a new authorization store. The following problem occurred: Access is denied.

Cause


This issue occurs because the SQL script that is used by Authorization Manager does not support the case-sensitive SQL table names or column names.

Resolution


Note The authorization store that cannot be created because of this issue is in an intermediate state in the SQL database. After you install the hotfix, you cannot use the intermediate authorization store. You have to remove the failure authorization store from the SQL database and create a new authorization store.
