We install agents on machines using an image, the agent GUID has been deleted before the snap shot is taken. Once the image is placed on a new machine the agent is failing to generate a new key pair.
20090205030111 e #656 Agent Failed to generate Agent Key pair 20090205030111 e #656 FrmSvc Failed to start Subsystem <Agent>, result=-62
This error means the machine is not popping up in ePO and can not be managed. The registry has no values under HKLM>SOFTWARE>NETWORK ASSOCIATES>EPOLICY ORCHESTRATOR>AGENT
Which means I can't delete the existing guid & mac to generate a new one. I was unable to open compiled.xml and precompiled.xml in below but unsure what these files do.
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\McAfee\Common Framework
This issue has happened even though nothing has changed with our framepackage used or ePO batches for a long time. Any ideas as to what to look at, I am scratching my head as to what has broken right now and how to fix it without re-buidling the entire image.
For our image we stop the framework service, delete the guid, run sysprep and then take a snapshot. Therefore when the machine boots into windows a new GUID is generated, communicates to ePO and brings down the policies (VSE8.5i)
Can anyone suggest anything I can test to confirm the frameworkservice.exe is actually corrupt other than the evidence I have provided. If is corrupt I will have to script a force uninstall/reinstall after the image has been placed on a new machine.
We have created batch file that runs after image is deployed where the error is occuring. This batch file re-runs frampkg.exe, which in turn is installing correctly and created a unique GUID for new machines. Machines are coming up in ePO as expected and downloading new tasks and policies.
Issue I have remaining is that these machines are not populating all details within ePO. I only am getting reported back Installed Path Plugin Version Language
and not the full details yet of Agent GUID, product version etc Any ideas
