To help identify the reasons behind the agent not running, do the following:
Examine to see if the <EG_INSTALL_DIRECTORY>\agent\data directory has some files with test names on that box.
Examine the log files located in <EG_INSTALL_DIRECTORY>\agent\logs Some common errors we come across in such situations in the error logs are like:
"EgManager could not be contacted" : Indicates that the agent is
having issues connecting and talking to the manager via the network.
"Applications in this host is currently not being managed" : Indicates
that either there is nothing being managed in the manager with the current
IP/nick, or the nick name on the agent side has been configured wrongly
Try restarting the eG Agent and if it doesn't work, take a copy of the error_log file from the above mentioned directory and send it to eG Helpdesk for more assistance.
