Neverending tasks

I recently upgraded my ePO 4.6.6 to 5.1 and found that my automated response task that pushes the McAfee agent to unmanaged rogues fails to abort on entities that cannot accept an agent, such as appliances or hosts that fail authentication. These tasks are set to abort after 10 minutes yet they remain in status "in progress" indefinitely and cause future task status' to show "waiting" until the in progress tasks are terminated. I've tried recreating the automated response yet get the same result. What's the deal?

Re: Neverending tasks

Please see support article:

KB79875 - "Agent Deployment" server task does not expire when it cannot reach the client computer.

I recommend you also contact McAfee support directly to discuss it.

Re: Neverending tasks

I have similar issue where my AD Sync task never finished, and terminate task fails to, problem is, after a reboot it tries to run the task again and get stuck again, not impressed with ePO 5.1.0 so far, way too buggy for my liking.
