In SCE 2007, if I use the ‘Add new computers and devices’ wizards to add in new managed computers, although most are added successfully, a few remain in the ‘Pending Management’ area with the following message:
“The installation of this agent is still in progress. if a computer remains in this state for an extended period of time, reject the computer from this view and retry discovery and agent installation.”
These computers are on the network, pingable, I can remote control them using other remote tools such as dameware, they have the same spec as the other pc’s in the estate, Windows XP SP2, McAfee VirusScan Ent, the users report no issues with them.
Yet they just sit in the Pending Management area, and the agent is not installed.
Anyone know why this happens to only certain pc’s?
