This error can occur if the CA Client Automation is pointing to a Scalability Server (SS) ,
that the agent on the Scalability is pointing to any other machine other than Localhost.
To solve the problem execute the following command on the Scalability server:
caf setserveraddress localhost
If that commands fails you might need to use(since agents on SS's are not supposed to be changed):
ccnfcmda -cmd setparametervalue -ps itrm/agent/solutions/generic -pn serveraddress -v localhost -manager
To test then run caf setserveraddress and the response should be localhost
