frustrations deploying Kace agent
I am experiencing some strange issues with deployment of my Kace Agents. Sometimes I will do an advanced provision by IP address to a set of machines (anything from 2-60) and some will because the agent says it cannot connect on a certain port (either 139 or 445), even though those ports are open. I will then try to do that same machine on its own as a single machine provision, and it will work fine. This seems to happen on both XP and Windows 7, yet other machines with similar configurations work just fine.
I did notice one other thing which may or may not be related-the network speed is (for reasons I cannot say) set for 10Mb half-duplex. Could that be affecting our deployments?
we are using Kace agent version

I wouldn't think the 10mb half duplex would be an issue, but I've never tested it.
This is written for a 5.1 agent, but most of the troubleshooting is valid: http://www.kace.com/support/resources/kb/article/troubleshooting-agent-provisioning-kbox-client-deployment
