To allow the install to complete the DAS component must be recreated. To recreate the DAS component go to the install directory E.g. Program Files\NetIQ\Security Manger\One Point directory and run DASInstall.exe. Afterwards to confirm the component was created go to Start\All Programs\Administrative Tools\Component Services\expand component services\Computers\My Computer\COM+ Applications.
Confirm the OnePointActiveOpsDas component is there. Afterwards try running the upgrade again.
