    Failed to determine host IP address when pinging a client

      I have a VM with ePO running on it. I am a total beginner, and I am having a hard time getting a policy pushed to the client.

      I did manage to get the McAfee agent pushed to the client, but when I try to ping it, it doesn't respond. I just "Failed to determine host IP address" error.

       

      I really have no idea how to troubleshoot this, and I would appreciate any help.

          Unfortunately the ping option in the ePO console uses the IP address last reported by the client to do the ping. This means if the entry in the ePO console you are attempting to ping is an unmanaged entry or if the IP address is blank or the loopback address for some reason you will get the error you mentioned when attempting to ping because ePO cannot determine the IP. It does not attempt to resolve the IP based on the name which would be ideal.

            It is an unmanaged entry. Is there a way for me manually specify an IP?

            Also, Wake up agent fails after 5 minutes as well.

              If its unmanaged that means that either no agent is installed on the client or the agent that is installed is failing to communicate. In either case a wakeup call will not work as it relies on the client having a functioning agent installed (it is the agent you are waking up afterall).

               

              If the machine is unmanaged then with the current design of ePO the only way to ping it would be to do so outside of ePO (start | run | cmd | ping <client name>).

               

              The solution to both of your problems is to get a functioning agent installed on the client.

                I deleted the system, and unistalled the agent.

                I then pushed the agent to my machine, and it worked. However, the agent can't communicate with the server.

                 

                The VM is not running locally, but on a VM infrastructure.

                  To give you a good answer I'd need to take a look at the agent log. This can be located:

                  • On windows 7: C:\ProgramData\McAfee\Common Framework\DB\agent_<machine name>.log
                  • On windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\McAfee\Common Framework\DB\agent_<machine name>.log

                   

                  Some things to check:

                  • Is the "McAfee Framework Service" present and started on the client?
                  • Is the "McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator Server" service present and started on the ePO server?
                  • Do you have a working route between the client and ePO? I.E. from the client does telnet work to the ePO server: telnet <IP address of ePO server> <secure ASCI port> (where the default secure port is 443).

                    I do have both services running, but I do not have a working route.

                     

                    Here's the log

                      Some possibilities:

                      • 192.168.153.147 is not the correct IP for your ePO server
                      • No route exists between the client and the ePO server (perhaps they are on a different NAT)
                      • A firewall is blocking access to port 443 on the ePO server
                      • The ePO server is not listening on port 443 (check with "netstat -anb"...perhaps the ePO server service is not started)

                       

                      If you notice we try the IP, then the name (HBSS-5-2011) and the agent was unable to establish a connection on port 443 on either.

                      • 8. Re: Failed to determine host IP address when pinging a client

                        I think it's because they are on different NATs. As I mentioned, I am total beginner, so I really don't know how to resolve this.

                        Both machines are XP.

                         

                        Thank you very much for taking the time to help me.
