You may notice that Scheduled Scans are not running or starting as required. This may include Scheduled Scans configured from the console or the agents, as well as patch deployments.
This article analyzes the root cause of this issue, along with the available solution.
A scheduled scan is a network audit that is scheduled to run automatically on a specific date/time and at a specific frequency. GFI LanGuard ships with a patch auto-deployment feature that enables users to deploy missing patches and service packs in all languages supported by Microsoft® products.
GFI LanGuard installation or upgrade deploys services and modules responsible for various actions. A common root cause for the remote actions not starting or running as required is when the sub-module agentmanagercom.dll is not registered correctly in the GFI LanGuard server.
Initially, restart the LanGuard Server and run a new Scheduled Scan on the same machine (or group of machines) where the previous Scheduled Scan attempts failed. If the issue persists, you may follow the steps below:
