We are currently running 6.9.1 in production. When installing 7.0.1 is seems to fail without a valid perfstat account which we do not have in our current installation. Was this a change in the most recent version?
The confusing part is the database guide says it is optional. But when doing the install it seems to be required
I'm also experiencing this. Documentation as Daniel stated says it's optional, but the lovely install script requires it.
