Hi,

 

No, we are not domain integrated. The suggestion by pete was helpful as i could find the group under which is listed. But , using the search client option, Iam unable to get thet machine is listed. I don't know why this is happening this way... Just got into the group and found that machine in the wrong group. the machine is online but shows "installtion failed, rolled back" though the machine has been successfully installed with SEP client with a green dot.

Hi,

 

did update policy on client machine. Also, from the sepm console to the group in which sep client was listed from the "troubleshooting" page under the help option, that group was also updated from sepm console.

After doing this, the client was listed in that group(different). I hope you could understand what i mean.

Hi,

 

Just want to know why is it listing "Installation failed, rolled back" in the sepm console even though it is properly installed as can be seen from the client machine.

Could you post the SEP_INST.log from the %temp location on one of these clients - this should tell us more. Beside have a look here:

https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/ins...

 

Do you have the autoupgrade package still assigned to that group? - try removing it.

pete_4u2002's picture

did you had set autoupgrade for this client?
what version of SEP is it running?

when you had exported the package which preffered group had you selected?

Anishk's picture

I selected the default group. We normally select it and once the clients are lsited in this group, they are moved to their corresponding groups.
