SNS ProTip for ePO: ePO 5.1.0 and 5.1.1 server tasks do not expire after reaching abort time

Version 1

    When ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) is unable to connect to a client system, certain server tasks (including Agent Wakeup Call, Agent Deployment, and AD sync) may remain in an "In Progress" state indefinitely. This issue occurs when an "abort after" time is configured in the task. When the configured time is exceeded, ePO fails to expire the task.

    ePO server versions 5.1.0 and 5.1.1 will experience this issue due to the Daylight Savings Time change that happens on November 1st 2015. This issue has been resolved with ePO 5.1.2. If you are unable to upgrade by that time, see the workaround in KB83384 (
