[DS 6.9 SP5 MR2] DAgent on Win7: Sleeping on the job
I am experiencing a weird situation that only affects the Win7 machines, the WinXP with AClient works perfectly.
I have DAgent installed on the Win7 clients, starts up with Win7 starting up, makes connection with DS server using specified IP (little cyan monitor appears in DS Console). When I login with an user account (local or domain) or logoff the icon changes immediately (upon DS Console refresh) to indicate the correct current state. So in terms of the DS Console the DAgent is responding correctly to client activities, including shutting downs (appearing as grey monitors) and restarts (switching between cyan and grey monitors).
When I try to send various jobs to the Win7 clients, DAgent does not seem to respond to the DS Console's job requests.
The only time I get DAgent to respond to the requests is to bring up the DAgent Window, then click Properties, to bring Properties window, then click OK. At this point it disconnects from DS, restablishes the connection, and gets latest client update, which has the job, then begins to execute the job.
What is causing the DAgent to sleep, and requiring one to login and refresh the connection?
I would really like to send jobs to Win7 clients without having to login, as I able to do with WinXP clients using AClient.
