I have fresh HP DL380 G4s to build as a DR copy of our live CMs, starting from a complete sys-erased state.
I install the O/S and sucessfully update it with win-OS-Upgrade-K9.2000-2-7sr8.exe
Then when am performing the CM install - disk 1 - 80-7851-02 goes through OK then after swapping to disk 2 - 80-7852-02 I get an error advising
"Failure occured during the Cisco Directory installation" (see attached .doc) and to see a trace file for details (also attached.)
The problem appears to be the DC Directory service won't start. I've tried changing it's login properties from administrator to system and with a less complicated password to no avail.
The build process worked fine previously on the same type of hardware with the same accounts and passwords.
