FPSMC Agent Installation Error

Forefront Protection Server Managment Console 2010 was latly been released, see the FSS blog entry

So a quick install, reveled some issues with the Deplay Agent task on some servers.. failing with this error:

Failed to deploy the Agent. Could not connect to net.tcp://ex-cas.contoso.com:8816/PushInstaller. The connection attempt lasted for a time span of 00:00:21.0157595. TCP error code 10060: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond 192.168.5.20:8816.

Quick workaround, just configure the Firewall State for the specific failed servers for the domain profile to off 🙂 or, configure the inbound port 8816 from the FPSMC consle server to that server..

Just a heads up for anyone who sees this.

Happy holidays !

  1. I think the issue was that the required ports (8815 & 8816) for installing FPE remotely was blocked by the firewall. As soon as those ports were opened on the windows firewall (on 2010 server), the agent wiil be installed successfully.

    pl let me know your updates….
