New KB article: OpsMgr 2007 installation fails with Account Verification Error


When you try to install Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 on Windows Server 2008, the installation fails and rolls back. Additionally, you receive the following error message:

Account Verification Error

Setup is unable to confirm the account details. For Operations Manager SDK accounts, make sure it is a local Administrator account. To continue setup, go back and enter the correct account information.

A new Knowledge Base article has been published to address this and there’s a hotfix available for download.
