I have some issues with backup exec remote agents getting installed on a few targer machines.
Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition
Backup Exec 12.5 SP2 (Updated to current)
We have about nine servers that is running Remote Agents. Four of nine servers got updates without hassles yesterday when deploying RA's to the target machines. Five servers failed. I have tried adding the servers each on in go, seperatly, by IP address. Without any success result.
Upon adding the target machine name/IP it prompts for the Username & Password, which uses admin username & password, pushes the remote agent, BUT THEN fails to install it. So connection between the source machine and target machine is established, pushes the installset for the update, but fails to run the installset for the remote agent.
Some Remote Agents are 5 updates behind, some to 3 updates and some are 12 updates. Same result on all the servers.
Are you relying in the push installer saying ther are XX updates to install as this messaage has a bug which is only fixed by having the very latest hotfixes to your media servers. The bug actually says teher are updates required when all teh updates have been installed correctly.
If you are actually getting an install failure then suggest doing a local install using the relevant .CMD file (don't use setup.exe)
