There are some considerations when installing CA Secure Proxy Server (SPS) on Windows Server 2012.
1) Ensure that "8dot3names" are enabled on the partition where CA SPS is being installed.
2) Make sure to run the Installation file "ca-proxy-<version>-<bitlevel>.exe" with Elevated Privileges (Run As Administrator)
2) Don't use spaces in the CA SPS installation path when not installing on C:\. (It is advised to not use white space in the path at all).
Enable "8dot3names" on the partition where CA SPS is being installed
1) Logon to the Windows Server 2012 host where CA SPS will be installed.
2) Launch CMD.exe with elevated privileges.
3) Run the following command to determine the '8dot3name' Registry State:
fsutil 8dot3name query
0: Enables 8dot3 name creation for all volumes on the system.
1: Disables 8dot3 name creation for all volumes on the system.
2: Sets 8dot3 name creation on a per volume basis. (Default)
3: Disables 8dot3 name creation for all volumes except the system volume.
The value will need to be either "0", "2", or "3" depending on where CA SPS is being installed.
4) Run the following command to determine the '8dot3name' setting per volume:
fsutil 8dot3name query D:
0: Enables 8dot3 name creation for the volume.
1: Disables 8dot3 name creation for the volume..
5) Run the following command to enable the '8dot3name' setting per volume:
fsutil 8dot3name set D: 0
Use "Run As Administrator During Installation
Logging on as an Administrator is not sufficient. All CA Siteminder installations and executions must be performed using elevated privileges (Run As Administrator).
1) 'Right-click' the CA Siteminder executable.
2) Select 'Run As Administrator'.
