Check the agent logs on the clients - can they communicate?
Are the three ePO services running on the ePO server?
Check the server.log on the ePO server - does it show clients communicating?
Hammer should not be necessary at this point. Maybe later
when the day comes like todays it's defenitley time for a hammer, a reeeeealy big hammer ! Dead laptop, web gateway with errors and not working ePO
OK I found out the problem, services were running (for a few seconds after each start). Then it stopped - reason - crashed appache service -> reason.... One of Microsoft security update. Now I guess you will ask me which one and which OS, service packs, hotfixes etc. Well I do not ***** know The server is gone ... gone gone...and after few minutes of thinking: debbuging for hours and restoring... NO, not worth it It was ePO server only and I had safely backup keys
Thanks for your help anyway Joe !
No problem - sometimes nuking the site from orbit is the only way to be sure
