EPO & Agent 4 - Agent unable to find a valid repository

Afternoon all,

Looking for some guidance.

I have a client machine which was running Agent 3, VSE 8.0 and pointing to an old EPO server.

I have manually run in the Agent 4 on the machine from the new EPO server and everything seemed hunky-dorie, the client showed on the new server, agent wake-up worked fine.

I than tried deploying VSE 8.7i to the client and i get the following from the Agent log:-

12 March 2009 12:20:00 Info Scheduler Scheduler: Invoking task [New Task]...
12 March 2009 12:20:00 Info Scheduler Next time(local) of task New Task: 13 March 2009 12:20:00
12 March 2009 12:20:02 Info Updater Unable to find a valid repository.
12 March 2009 12:20:02 Info Updater Update process failed.

Any ideas on what could be happening?

I have had a quick google around but to be honest, much of what i read seems to be pointed at older versions of EPO.

Having used EPO 3.5 for over a year i thought i would go check the repository on the EPO 4 server but i was abit raised eyebrow as the repository folder "D:\McAfee\ePolicy Orchestrator\DB\Software" does not have a share setup on the directory where as my old EPO 3.5 software repository did.

Any input would be much appreciated.

P.S. I have tried to reboot the client after i manually ran in the new Agent to no-avail.

RE: EPO & Agent 4 - Agent unable to find a valid repository

Fixed by completely uninstalling the McAfee Agent, rebooting and running in Agent 4.0 again from fresh (instead of over the top of 3.5).
