Moved to ePO for better support.
The log you have provided indicates that the Network Path cannot be found. This is normally down to either Name Resolution of the system name by the ePO server, or that TCP 139 & 445 are not open from the ePO server to the System to copy the Windows Agent exe file to the system.
Try using nslookup from your ePO server to resolve the system name using NetBIOS (unqualified name), if this fails check the DNS settings on the IP configurations of the ePO server and the FQDN suffix list.
If name resolution works, check that the ePO server can get to the remote system on port TCP 445.

Maybe you also check the firewall-settings on your clients.
It´s an often to see problem for the ePO not being able to contact the clients.
As it turns out I confused myself a bit before creating this thread. The message I posted was for about 24 works stations that the server can't contact. It is possible that these are laptops that are being used by off-site users and I wont be able to verify until later this week. there are a couple of other computers that I can contact and I can get the Admin$ but still get this error message:
Starting deployment to computer hostname through the Agent Handler server.domain.local
Failed to access remote system registry, system error: The network path was not found
Deploy agent installation package to target system was successful
In the ePO-settings you can configure how and in which order ePO is trying to contact the systems. This can be DNS, IP etc.
So it´s quite possible and normal that you get such messages when the first method fails.
Thanks. I was able to load the remote computers services. I did notice that remote registry service was started but I stop and restarted it and the installation went through successfully with no errors. Unfortunately now they still show up as unmanaged despite have the installer run. I have about 10 other computers sitting in the same boat and ideas? Sorry for all the diferent issues it feels like as soon as i fix one issue another pops up.
thanks for your help so far.
What does you ePO say, when you ping the system? Is it reachable?
Yes EPO Says the system is pingable.
