Description

During an LPS install in a cluster environment, you receive the following error:

Message
Error 425 - Unable to obtain the path to the central cluster storage.

As a result, setup will not continue, an error is found in Loftware.log, and the installation of the LPS on second node in the cluster fails. 

Potential Causes

During the install of the LPS on Node 1 the "SetupCache.ini" file was not populated with the cluster information. The "SetupCache.ini" file is located in the root of the LoftwareCentral share (loftware$)

Solution

Edit the "SetupCache.ini" file with the information required and re-launching the LPS install with cluster support. This information is stored in the "Llmcluster.ini" file on the installed node

SetupCache.ini:
[setupInfo]
Path=C:\Program Files\Loftware Labeling
Edited SetupCache.ini

IPAddress= <IP address for Loftware_VS>
Subnet=<subnet mask for Loftware_VS IP>
