I am a database developer and I have a task to prepare silent installation of SQL Server 2012 using configuration file.
I have a problem with passwords for server services like: RSSVCACCOUNT="NT Service\ReportServer"
During normal installation with user interface there is no need to specify passwords for services. I assume that setup generates random passwords or they are handled by Windows virtual accounts.
However when I use configuration file then setup expect to provide a password either in the file or in the command prompt.
My question is why do I have to provide a password with silent installation while it is no needed during normal installation.
Is there a way to silently install SQL Server without specifying passwords for services?
