Deployment Solution

Issue/Introduction

We were unable to send Deployment tasks to the Client machine from Task Server.

From the PECTAgent.log we were able to find the following line :

No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.

 

Cause

The WWW Service was set to Manual and was not started  which caused the Default web site under IIS to not start as well.

Resolution

We set the www service to automatic and then started it. Once that was done we were able to also start the Default website under IIS and get the Task Server Agent to register to itself. And after that we were also able to push the tasks to the Client machine.


Applies To

NS 7.1.2 MP1

Site Server with the PXE Services.
