KNOWN ISSUE: Symantec Management Agent unresponsive due to unhandled exception


Article ID: 158393


Updated On:


Management Platform (Formerly known as Notification Server)


The Symantec Management Agent is unresponsive although the agent service is still running.  During this hung state, manually forcing a client configuration update or sending basic inventory does not produce any perceived activities on the agent.  If the TaskManagement folder is renamed on the impacted client computer and the Symantec Management Agent service is restarted, normal functionality may resume for a period of time before reverting back to the hung state.  A review of the agent log files may have similar entries as those below.
