Task Server not reporting task status
i have a strange problem on about 100 of the 150 machines we have installed with CMS 7.1 SP2.
We have a task server (on the NS) which when I run any tasks, the clients receive it immediately and run it successfully. If I check the agent logs it says task run successfully. However, the status on the task in the agent gui on the machine says running (even though i can see it has finished). The status on the server says 'waiting for the agent to get the task' even though the task has been delivered and run on the client.
This is causing us lots of problems with jobs as it only runs the first task and just waits for the client to tell it has finished before it can start the next one and all jobs eventually have a status of failed when the timeout is reached
Have checked firewall to see if it was being blocked but the are currently off.
