I am having trouble installing the ZENWorks 10 database. Either from full
install or using pre-install with switch "setup -c"

the error is
ERROR 25/10/2007 14:44:01 Database creation failed, ensure that the
specified path exists on the remote server: c:Program
FilesNovellZENworksdatabasezenworks_database.mdf
ERROR 25/10/2007 14:42:42 Database creation failed, ensure that the
specified path exists on the remote server: d:Program
FilesNovellZENworksdatabasezenworks_poc.mdf
ERROR 25/10/2007 14:40:52 Database creation failed, ensure that the
specified path exists on the remote server: d:Program
FilesNovellZENworksdatabasezenworks_database.mdf

Also tried on c:program files drive

Am an administrator on the server and can verify that I have write
privileges on the remote path. Also tried a different name for the
database "zenworks_poc"

The path "d:Program FilesNovellZENworksdatabase" exists!
(Unable to change the path to specify something different.

using sql (sa) authentication or windows authentication has the same
result.
both the windows administrator account and the sa account can create
databases on the server.

there is just one server (evaluation server)
running
sql 2005 standard sp2
iis (for sql 2005 standard sp2)
fileservices
on windows 2003 SP2 EN/US

There is also a bug in the program that if you go BACK and change the dir
from d:program files to c:program files the second screen remains
"d:Program FilesNovellZENworksdatabase" (grayed out)
You have to completely exit the setup program in order to change the path.

Anyone experiencing the same issue?
