  • Currently trying to deploy Windows SysEDGE agent.
  • Created the job and submitted yesterday afternoon.
  • The job is still in "delivering" state and won't complete.
  • Tried to resubmit the job and that did not work.
  • Tried to cancel the job and that did not work.
  • Restarted all VAIM Services but jobs still at 0% in "delivering" state.

  • Hung jobs can sometimes cause all future deployments to fail.
