Due to maintenance on our Windows Servers, we ran into an issue where we had to reinstall the SPECTRUM Process Daemon Service. The processd --remove command ran fine, but we can't reinstall. We get the following error: "Requesting installation of service: "SPECTRUM Process Daemon "Error: Failure opening security policy -1073741790 CreateService error: installation failed: this service isn't currently installed".
This issue is known to happen when UAC is enabled on the User account running the processd --install command.
Disable UAC for the account you are using, reboot the server and then try running the processd --install command again.
For more information regarding the Process Deamon, and the command structure, please see the "CA Spectrum Distributed SpectroSERVER Administration" Guide.
