Management Agent logs "Updater Command format is not correct"

Hi,

I just saw some weird lines on some of our Management Agent logs "Command format is not correct."

At first glance everything seams to work fine (policies do get enforced properly) but I'm currious what these messages mean? and I don't like the look of them

Re: Management Agent logs "Updater Command format is not correct"

The status type is 'info' so there is no error to be worried about. (or it's status type would be 'error').

The message seems to be in relation to an update task, since it comes from the 'updater' subsystem.

Presumably the update task referenced continues and completes successfully, if not you would certainly see error messages later.

Please bear in mind that informational messages do not need resolving.

As to what it means it would likely be necessary to put agent and scripting engine into debug-mode and inspect the agent log and the mcscript log from the same point in time to get enough detail for the context of the message.

Fyi - mcscript log is the log file for the scripting engine of the agent, which would also be recording data while the updater subsystem is doing work.
