    You may also see an error in the log similar to this:

     

    2017-01-01 21:24:14 INFO: Executing command Service_CBA8_StopService  (SetupController.ExecuteNextCommand())

    2017-01-01 21:24:14 INFO: Executing: C:\LANDESKSoftware2016-3\Resources\LANDesk.Common.RunMethod.exe assemblyFile="LANDesk.Install.Common.Actions.dll" class="Services" Method="StopServiceEx" commandLine="CBA8;1200;true"  (Launcher.ExecuteXmlCommand())

    2017-01-01 21:24:14 ERROR: Execution of Service_CBA8_StopService completed. Return code: 1, State: Failure  (SetupController.ExecuteNextCommand())

     

    Cause

    This may be caused if the LANDESK Management Agent service is missing. Since the service doesn't exist, the installation is unable to stop it, and fails.

     

    Solution

     

    To reinstall the service you'll need to run the following command:

     

    "C:\Program Files\LANDesk\Shared Files\residentagent.exe" /register

     

    If the command fails, please check "C:\Program Files\LANDesk\Shared Files" for ResidentAgent.exe.

    If the file is missing, you can copy it from this location in your LDMS 2016.3 installation directory:

     

    C:\LANDESKSoftware2016-3\LD\MS\PF\LD\MS\_non\ldlogon\sharedtech\

     

    Once the file is copied over, run the command above to reinstall the service.


    Your installation should continue past this point.
