Which version of ENS are you using? This was typically an issue we had back in the 10.5.2 version.

It can however also be a sign of a dll injection or that the services aren't running - again if you are running anything below 10.5.4 you would be more suspetable to this.

If you are running 10.5.3 and lower, then please upgrade. If you are already running a later version, it might be worth opening a support ticket and providing them with an MER of the system affected as this type of issue would need investigating.

Any similar issue reported for ENS 10.6.1.1273?

 I am getting the same error after we have updated to the February release.

Hi @User16096767 If you are still seeing the issue with the February Update, kindly enable ENS debug logging and open a case with Technical Support after gathering an MER from the system displaying the issue. As I said, there are a number of causes of this issue. Some were identified as a product issue and addressed in McAfee Agent fixes and also various ENS fixes. More often than not, then issue is caused by something else though. There are currently no known issues with the Feb Update for this issue.

Check the AMCore contents if they are installed or not. This issue is usually arising when ENS is upgraded, but the AMCore content does not installed after ENS deployment task completes.
