For more information on this SQL error, see the following Microsoft knowledgebase article:
This error typically occurs when the user does not have sufficient setup account privileges to install the ESMC database or the minimum system requirements for the database are not met.
Begin with solution I and only continue to solution II if the issue is not resolved.
You can use an existing Microsoft SQL Server running in your environment; however, it must meet minimum requirements.
