Hi all,

Just upgraded to 6.4 SP2, and now none of my agents are able to check in. This is the log I'm seeing universally:

The only thing that was changed was upgrading the KACE server using the .kbin file. Everything was working prior to this.

  • Are your clients able to ping the kbox or vice versa? I'd open up a command prompt and see if you can ping and get a response.
    • Yep, they can ping, and they can even hit the URL just fine. No SSL errors or problems. I've gone ahead and reverted back to the previous version - but I'm still extremely perplexed what could've changed.
      • I don't recall seeing any tickets recently that have had inventorying issues. If you'd like, can always have it investigated if you saved the logs and everything. Can create a support ticket to see if we can figure out the issue.
  • I'll submit it up. Thanks Irwin
  • Following my upgrade to SP2, A lot of my 6.4.180 agents continued communicating but would not inventory. I am having to force them to check in to get them updated to 6.4.522. Once they get to 6.4.522 they seem to be inventorying OK.
  • my upgrade went smooth. enabled provisioning and client update and I now have about 75% of my machines up to 6.4.522 both 6.4.180 and 6.4.522 are checking in
    • also my 6.4.179 clients are checking in
  • Check if after the upgrade the SSL certificate is ok. It seems the agents have issues to contact the AMP port 52230/tcp as well.

  • I have upgraded to SP2 with 6.4.180 agent running and all is fine. I started putting 6.4.522 agent on a few machine and they are disappearing from inventory. I reverted them back to 6.4.180 and they are showing back up again. Not to highly impressed with 6.4.522 agent.
  • SP3 is now available; Hopefully it helps with this issue
