The following error occurs while trying to deploy the Agents or the Scalability Server using the Infrastructure Deployment Wizard:

Figure 1



Domain Manager
Check whether the Agent packages exist in the "%ProgramFiles%\CA\DSM\Packages\Public\CAUnicenterDSM" folder on the Domain Manager.

If they do not exist re-register the packages using the command:

R11.x - dmscript.exe dsmPush.dms copy -all
R12.x - dmscript.exe dsmPush.dms copy

*Note: The dsmPush.dms file is available on the root of the ITCM DVD.

For more options run: dmscript.exe dsmPush.dms -check

Scalability Server
Check whether the Agent packages exist in the "%ProgramFiles%\CA\DSM\DMPrimer\CAUnicenterDSM" folder on the Scalability Server.

If they do not exist, it means that the Agent plugins have not been staged on the Scalability Server.

Use the Infrastructure Deployment Wizard to stage the Agent plugins. Use the option - 'Stage Software at Scalability Server' option in the 'Job Type' screen and choose the desired plugins to be staged.
