Error when provisioning Agent: could not be launched: 5 Access is denied


I trying to provisioning Agent to some Windows Server using Domain Admin user. 


      Opening pipe to service
      IN: pipe_open(\KBRemoteService, 7098287)

  [05/30/17 01:51:23 PM] End of remote communications. 
  [05/30/17 01:51:23 PM] End provisioning run.

Then I try to install it using Local Admin user to some of these Servers, and it success. Looking at agent_msi_provision.bat it is seems the installer is accessing %WINDIR%\temp which is my Domain Admin do not have permission to access it.
So i suspecting this as the cause of the error, am i right? If so, how to override it to use more general folder like %APPDATA% instead %WINDIR%\temp?

  • I would always prefer to provision via GPO rather than from the KBOX itself (too many requirements).

    • Can GPO Tools target only one computer only? We are doing a demo so only certain computers need to be installed not all of them. - hendra.tommy 3 years ago
  • I am also having this issue. I agree that GPO is the way to go, but due to circumstances beyond my control I need to make this work at least for a few PCs.

    Does anyone have thoughts on what might fix this? I checked the event viewer and monitored the tasks on the target PC during the attempt. It doesn't even look like the install reaches the target PC.
