Agents cant communicate with EPO

Hi

I successfully installed EPO and agent handler. When agents installed on clients try to connect to the epo server and get policies i get an error that the agent could not communicate with the epo server.

While having wireshark on and trying again i get following error on the client "Alert (Level: Fatal, Description: Decrypt Error)" and on the agent handler i get the same error and the following too "Alert (Level: Fatal, Description: Unknown CA)"

Re: Agents cant communicate with EPO

What DB authentication method are you using within ePO (Windows or SQL) ?

Is your AH within your Windows domain ? If not you must use SQL authentication ...

Re: Agents cant communicate with EPO

At the installation i used mixed authentication, but entered the SQL credentials since using windows credentials gave me an error because the AH was in the DMZ

Re: Agents cant communicate with EPO

Did you enter an IP address for epo/database server or the servernames ?

If you entered servernames are they resolveable on the AH ?

In some cases using HOSTS on the AH for ePO/db server name resolution helps ...

Re: Agents cant communicate with EPO

Just another note - AFAIK the AH needs to do a reverse lookup on the epo servers name for certificate issues - that´s why HOSTS entries might fix the problem ...
