Cause

The Tomcat service requires the 8.3 naming convention, which must remain enabled for Tomcat to function properly.

Solution 1

CAUTION: This article contains information about opening or modifying the registry.
  • The following information is intended for System Administrators. Registry modifications are irreversible and could cause system failure if done incorrectly.
  • Before proceeding, Intel Security strongly recommends backing up your registry and understanding the restore process. For more information, see: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/256986.
  • Do not run a .REG file that is not confirmed to be a genuine registry import file.

The 8.3 naming convention must be enabled on the server when extended characters exist in the installation paths.

NOTE: 
Installation to a path that failed before 8.3 naming was enabled will still fail to that same path. Point the installation to a new directory path because 8.3 naming support is added to that path by default when enabled.
 
To enable the 8.3 naming convention:
  1. Click Start, Run, type regedit, and click OK.
  2. Navigate to and select the following registry key:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem]

  3. In the right pane, right-click NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation, and select Properties.
  4. Modify the Value data from 1 to 0.

    NOTE: On a Windows 2008 server the default value is 2, and you have to change it to 0.
     
  5. Restart your computer.
  6. Install ePO to a new directory.

Solution 2

As an alternative, use FSUTIL.EXE to change the value of the NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation key.
 
Click Start, Run, type in the appropriate command below for your specific operating system, and click OK:
  • On Windows 2008 or earlier: fsutil.exe behavior set disable8dot3 0
  • On Windows 2008 R2 or later: fsutil.exe 8dot3name set 0
