Drobo Dashboard v2.1.1 (Mac) install fails on Lion Server

When attempting to install Drobo Dashboard 2.1.1 on Mac OS X Lion Server v10.7.2, the installation ends abruptly with a generic failure message:

“The installer encountered an error the caused the installation to fail. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance.”

This occurs BOTH on a fresh out of the box Mac system with no additional software installed (except preloaded apps) and attempting to upgrade from 2.0.5. (as 2.0.5 and lower appear to install correctly).

The only relevant console details appear to be as follows:

Any advice?

//not that this should matter since I can’t even complete the install, but I have a Drobo FS
