Issue/Introduction

After upgrading to Applications Manager version 9.3.4, the creation of a new Agent no longer functions. This can be reproduced with the following steps:

  1. Open up Agent Selector menu
  2. Select New
  3. Enter in required values (Name, OS Type, Description, Output Directory, AgentService IP, User, Sleep Time, CPU Limit, Thread Schedule)
  4. Select Apply or Okay

Nothing happens and no error is received. However, in the client logs, the following error is seen:
