Agent Deployment Fails

Hi all,

 

so it is me again - sorry about that but I am still in learning phase

 

So here is my problem, when I deploy an agent via the McAfee ePO console, I am getting back the status "Failed". But the strange thing is that the client finally reinstalls the client like it should, please see this client logs:

The english above might not be that good, I have used google translator.

What do you think, is that "Failed" a false positive?

 

Thanks for your input.

 

Best regards,

lohr

    Re: Agent Deployment Fails

    An agent push is essentially a datachannel request and we resolved several datachannel issues in ePO 4.5 P5 so if you are running a version of ePO less than that I would recommend patching up.

     

    It could be that the agent was actually already installed on the client I suppose. To troubleshoot an agent push problem I would need a copy of the server.log from the handler you selected to do the push taken immediatly after the push failed along with the name of the client you attempted to push to. The server..log can be located in <ePO install directory>\DB\Logs.
