SSRS 2019 setup fails on Windows Server 2016

Dave Sardella 111 Reputation points


I am trying to install Reporting Services 2019 on a Windows Server 2016 with SQL Standard 2019. The installation appears to proceed but then decides to roll back and the SSRS folder is removed. Looking at the log I get this error which I think is causing my issue but I haven't been able to find a direction to look at:

Install Step Microsoft.BIServer.Setup.AddAccountToGroupsStep threw exception. System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. ---> System.ArgumentException: The parameter is incorrect.
--- End of inner exception stack trace ---
at System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry.Invoke(String methodName, Object[] args)
at Microsoft.BIServer.Configuration.GroupManager.AddUserToGroup(DirectoryEntry group, AccountCredentials accountCredentials)
at Microsoft.BIServer.Configuration.GroupManager.AddAccountToPerformanceMonitorUsers(AccountCredentials accountCredentials)
at SetupEngine.Install()
1|Attempting to roll back...

Windows Server is up to date and the SQL Server appears to be working correctly and as I can access from SSMS.

Any help would be appreciated.

    I knew as soon as I posted, I would figure it out. . The 2016 server had AD on it and instead of SSRS throwing an error about being on a DC, it gave me the error
    above. Maybe that will help some one in the future.
