  1. 1. The network path was not found

    Causes:

    This error occurs when-

    • The target computer cannot be contacted.
    • The service account used to run ADAudit Plus does not have the sufficient privileges to access the admin share (\\server_name\admin$) on the target computer.

    Solution:

    • Ensure that there are no connectivity issues between the server (where ADAudit Plus has been installed) and the target computer. Manage Agent page
    • Check if you are able to access the admin share on the target computer, using the service account used to run ADAudit Plus. If you are unable to, configure Domain Settings (in the ADAudit Plus console) and the Log on tab (of ADAudit Plus service) with a user account that has privilege to access the admin share (\\server_name\admin$) on the target computer.

    Note:

    • To configure user account in Domain Settings page, login to the ADAudit Plus console → Domain Settings → Hover over the relevant domain, click on Modify Credentials → Enter credentials.
    • To configure user account in Log on tab, click on Start icon → Select Services → Navigate to ManageEngine ADAudit Plus, right-click, select Properties → Log On → This account → Enter credentials.
  2. 2. Couldn't copy ADAuditPlusAgent.msi / Access Denied: failed to connect to ADMIN$ share

    Causes:

    This error occurs when-

    • The service account used to run ADAudit Plus does not have the sufficient privileges to access the admin share (\\server_name\admin$) on the target computer.
    • The ADMIN$ share access limit has been exceeded.

    Solution:

    • Check if you are able to access the admin share on the target computer, using the service account used to run ADAudit Plus. If you are unable to, configure Domain Settings (in the ADAudit Plus console) and the Log on tab (of ADAudit Plus service) with a user account that has privilege to access the admin share (\\server_name\admin$) on the target computer.
    • Navigate to Shared Folders Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in → Shares → ADMIN$ → Properties → Set an appropriate value for User limit.

  3. 3. Another installation is already in progress (0x652)

    Causes:

    This error occurs when the installation of another MSI file is in progress on the target computer.

    Solution:

  4. 4. The system cannot find the file specified (0x2)

    Causes:

    This error occurs when the service account is unable to locate the ADAuditPlusAgent-x86.msi or ADAuditPlusAgent-x64.msi files.

    Solution: Check if you are able to access the admin share on the target computer, using the service account used to run ADAudit Plus. If you are unable to, configure Domain Settings (in the ADAudit Plus console) and the Log on tab (of ADAudit Plus service) with a user account that has privilege to write files to the SYSTEMDRIVE\Windows directory on the target computer.

    Note:

    • To configure user account in Domain Settings page, login to the ADAudit Plus console → Domain Settings → Hover over the relevant domain, click on Modify Credentials → Enter credentials.
    • To configure user account in Log on tab, click on Start icon → Select Services → Navigate to ManageEngine ADAudit Plus, right-click, select Properties → Log On → This account → Enter credentials.

    • ADAudit Plus has already not been installed.

    Also, check if you are able to access the admin share on the target computer, using the service account used to run ADAudit Plus. If you are unable to, configure Domain Settings (in the ADAudit Plus console) and the Log on tab (of ADAudit Plus service) with a user account that has privilege to write files to the SYSTEMDRIVE\Windows directory.

    Note:

    • To configure user account in Domain Settings page, login to the ADAudit Plus console → Domain Settings → Hover over the relevant domain, click on Modify Credentials → Enter credentials.
    • To configure user account in Log on tab, click on Start icon → Select Services → Navigate to ManageEngine ADAudit Plus, right-click, select Properties → Log On → This account → Enter credentials.

  7. 7. Could not install client software

    Causes:

    This error occurs because of a network timeout while installing the agent.
