Installation of NFA fails with errors attempting to restart the CA MySQL service.
MySQL <nodename>.err file contains the following errors:

2018-05-29T23:16:01.728843Z 0 [ERROR] InnoDB: File .\ib_logfile101: 'aio write' returned OS error 187. Cannot continue operation 
2018-05-29T23:16:01.728843Z 0 [ERROR] InnoDB: Cannot continue operation. 
Cause:
This is the result of a known MySQL Bug.
See the following MySQL Bug Report for more information:
https://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=28913

These errors can occur when installing MySQL on a GPT (GUID Partition Table) formatted drive.
Resolution:
Either format the drive that NFA will be installed on using MBR (Master Boot Record) rather than GPT, or install NFA on a Virtual Machine.
