i try to install GPFS on Windows Server 2008 R2, after successfully install GPFS i want to use the GPFS Command Prompt. But when i type in some Commands there comes a error: "mmstartup cannot execute - Permission denied"

I think i do something wrong while create the Administrative Account but i don't know what kind of error it is. I start the Service as User DOMAIN\root and set the Profildirectory with grand access to user root. Now i login as user root but get the Error i show at top.

Any suggestion to debug this Installation?

I can solve this Problem with following Steps from this link

After installed GPFS Client, I had to change permissions to the following directories before mmstartup can run.

Launch C Shell

chown -R root /var/mmfs  
chown -R root /var/adm/log 
chown -R root /var/adm/ras  
chown -R root /usr/lpp/mmfs

There are no errors for wrong Permission now.

thx Rene
