After unity installs, you are told to run the configuration setup from the icon on the desktop. During this setup, it asks you for the password of the user you are logged in as, in my case, administrator. It keeps bouncing back saying invalid password. I've created a new user with admin rights, and tried that, same problem. As well as change the password for admin, again, same problem. Suggestions? <br><br><br><br>


Re: Installation

Does the account you are logged in as have 'Act as part of the OS' and 'Log on as a service' rights effective?

Here is the release note for defect CSCdv37418 - it addresses this issue.


Symptom: During Setup Part II, the correct password for the account installing
Unity is not accepted.

Conditions: this only occurs in Unity 3.0

Workaround: Give the installation account 'act as part of the operating system'
and 'log on as a service' effective rights on the Unity server. Right click
on Security Settings and choose Reload to force the changes to take effect.
Verify that these rights are effective (not just at the local level).
Then re-run Setup Part II. This may require a server reboot, even if the
policies appear to have taken effect.

In order to make these rights effective on the Unity server: if Unity is a
member server, it should be sufficient to grant these rights
in the Local Group Policy. If Unity is a domain controller, you will need
to add these rights to Default Domain Controller Policy.
