Unless this is an issue with multiple devices, I would just delete that agent from SW then go to the server and install it manually. Make sure to uninstall the agent via programs and features if it is listed.
Going to the agent list on Orion, deleting the agent (which in turn uninstalled it from the server) and reinstalling manually from the msi file has fixed the issue.
What's interesting is i installed manually from the msi in the first place. Accept as glitch and move on until it crops up again.
This issue has been ongoing, and any server I have found doing this seems to have a constant stream of data flowing from the Orion NPM server to the Orion.Agent.Services.exe on a remote machine. (I assume trying to send the plugins across, as the C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\Agent\Plugins folder is empty on the remote machine)
This is rather undesirable.
Why this goes on for days/weeks, and the plugins never end up on the remote machine is weird.
Does anyone know if some useful info can be mined from the agent or server logs?
found either C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\Logs\Agent or C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\Logs_Agent ?
