Deploying a new Automation Agent from Console fails on "Remove previous deployment instance"

Version 4

    Problem

    When deploying a new Automation Agent, from the Automation Console, Push Deployment fails on "Remove previous deployment instance".

     

     

    Cause

    The requirements for deploying a new Agent to that client are not met.

     

     

    Solution

    There are multiple solutions possible:

    - Disable the Firewall on the client (Least secure!)

    - Enable "File and Printer Sharing" in the Network and Sharing Center

    - Enable the "File and Printer Sharing (SMB-In)" rule for the Domain profile in Windows Firewall with Advanced Security (Most secure.)

     

    Note that for deploying an Agent to the local machine, the Console needs to be started with the "Run as Administrator" option.
