Linux Agent install issue

I tried discovering a linux box and deploying agent, But I see below error. 

My WinRM service is running perfectly fine on the management server.

My error is:


“”The WinRM client cannot complete the operation within the time specified. Check if the machine name is valid and is reachable over the network and firewall exception for Windows Remote Management service is enabled.””




When I telnet to port 1270, the connection fails. There we have an issue. Very simple


Run this to open the port on linux box. This command is not for Solaris

iptables -I INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 1270 -j ACCEPT 


Ok now that your ports are open, now when you try to discover and try installation, you see “”access denied.””

When I see in the event Log of RMS, I see event ID 1002

Discovery of linux failed with the following error:

Installed Agent failed to initialize properly.


Access is denied.

Event Xml:


So it lies beyond 1270 port. Something that did a trick. Run below.

This could be that partially installed agent are not allowing the agent to be installed. See that installation fails at Validation step. I tried to remove the partially installed agent. Agent  was any way running on the Linux box. Try below step


rpm -e scx

rm -rf /etc/opt/microsoft/scx

Now, start the discovery and install of agent through console.


You see a happy face…
