This issue has been solved. See solution.

We have a new install of 7.5 on Windows 2012 running local sql databases. The install completes and the Symantec DLO adminisrtration Service does not start. The error is

Ensure the SQL instance for DLO is running under a local system account. Try providing 'sa' rights to the DLO administrator to the DLO database. And the DLO Admin service should be using the domain admin account & should be a local admin on the DLO media server as well.

I had the same problem.

Providing admin rights to the databases worked for me.
I've done this with a microsoft script:

thank you.

Thank you, I was able to open the admin console.

I had to add the domain admin user to the local admins group before I ran the DLO 7.5 install.
