Thank you. I did open a ticket and have the server rebooted after the NBU 5.1 was uninstalled. I’ll go try the “run as administrator” but I don’t think that that will matter any since I’m on the box as an admin. I’ll also try the turning off of the A/V stuff.


Thank You,

Judy's recommendation to "run as administrator" is a good one.  That an older version was uninstalled makes the hair on the back of my neck tingle ... because of the uninstall, I recommend a Windows reboot before installing 6.5 ... and if anything NBUish happens on the reboot, reboot again.  Turn Anti-Virus off temporarily and try the install again.  (I don't have a lot of Windows machines either, but these (3) actions have allowed the NBU 6.5 install to complete for me (when it didn't on the machine owner's first try).


I've had it suggested from someplace that defining a policy for the client and opening the vnetd port (13724) first is needed, but that has NOT been true for my cases (I usually open the firewalls after install and define an NBU policy after that).


Cheers, Wayne
