I am trying to perform a fresh install of OnCommand Unified Manager 6.4 RC1 on a Windows Server 2012 platform. However, the installation quits with the below error. This is seen just after entering the MySQL root user password. It mentions to check the log, but there isn't any log file generated, nor there is any path mentioned. Any pointers?

This issue seems to be a bug 988703 which is still being worked on by the netapp engineering team. Had logged a case with NetApp on this and they provided a temporary workaround that fixed the issue.
The work around was to change the “mysql” root password using the steps below:
cd "..\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.6\bin"
mysql.exe -uroot -p
password: [Enter the current password]
SET PASSWORD FOR 'root'@'localhost' = PASSWORD('new_password');
Once the passowrd is changed, restaring the OnCommand installation succeeds.
