    Solus 3 will no longer install agent

    Yesterday our Solus3 would install the agent on selected PC's without a problem. Today I have tried to deploy to another couple of PC's and the install just fails. The error I get is "access denied to the remote machine." The firewall settings are on the remote machine and I'm using an admin account to install.

    Nothing has changed since yesterday. Can anyone help?

    Thanks. I have now managed to get it to install on a few machines (firewall enabled) however the rest just give an "Unable to get an ipv4 address for this agent" error.

    Stupid question, can you get an IP for the client if you ping it? Does it give you back two IP's perhaps?

    Came across this thread and had a thought about it - apologies for bumping such an old post.

    The ip4 issue seems to be when DNS contains multiple entries for a host; probably due to having LAN and WLAN configured and active at the same time. Log on to your DNS servers and scavenge stale records, do a ipconfig /flushdns on your Solus3 server and also an ipconfig /registerdns on the machine with the ipv4 issue. You could also reboot here but I'm not sure it makes a difference.

    Finally delete the machine from Solus3 and then re-add it. It should now be able to reach the machine.

    We've come across this a fair old bit too, and can confirm this is good information.
