Using ePO 4.0 svr, Agent is 3.6. We tried to do a mass install of VSE on a few 100 systems and had to stop after about 50 due toi problems. Install is through Novell LDAP, no ActiveDirectory available, no agent or software pushing.
Theory : Once installed, the Agent calls the Server and gets software packages, policies etc...
Practice : on several systems, VSE is not or only partially installed, many systems don't do updates, though they do call the server and I can see them in the tree.
Fact : on some systems, two software install were scheduled on the same day (not by me or under my control). It seems that on some, the other SW triggered a reboot after install - it is unknown whether the Agent had finished installing or whether VSE install was interrupted by the reboot.
Fact : many systems showed error messages implying that the MSI installing VSE did not finish or didn't close - Install Management Team accuses a "bug" in the VSE install MSI. I don't have enough fact or info to prove or disprove. I will add pics of the error messages (taken from a VM) as soon as possible.
What can I do now to find out what went wrong ? I tried to localise the install logs (in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\McAfee ?) but didn't find any info there.
any help will be greatly appreciated as I have another 500 machines to install Serge
