Has this been fixed?  I am getting the same thing.


Re: ONTAP DSM will not install


We just hit this two minutes ago at a customer site.  We resolved it by running the ontap dsm package as the local machine administrator.  Then everything installed as normal.

Should probably log a bug on this.

ONTAP DSM will not install


thank you. We got the same error message but we also got an error message (acces denied if I remember correctly) trying to change the service account from the system (default) to an domain account. Running the command line as administrator and starting the install process from the command line solved both issues.

We found that we succeed after disabling UAC and rebooting the server. Then the OnTap DSM 3.4 will install.
