Why does every task I run fail?

All,

Whenever I am in ePO (5.x) and I "Run a client task now," it always fails.

This can be a product deployment, update, or anything. I have no idea where to look because there is no error log or anything.

Please help! Thanks!

Does it instantly fail or do the first two progress blocks turn green but the third one ultimately turns red?

Re: Why does every task I run fail?

I would say about 90% of the time it turns red instantly, and then 10% of the time it hits the first two blocks green and then fails.

Try re-deploying the agent with the 'forceinstall' switch on a sample from the 90% and see if that helps.

For the 10%, confirm that task actually fails on some of the targets.  Often the task succeeds but there was a communication problem preventing the agent from telling the ePO server that it succeeded.

Hello,

Please check server task log > Sub tasks for detailed logs in ePO console.

Or navigate to server.log file in ePO installation directory under logs folder which will be having detailed error codes.
