    Hello every body!

    i need help guys, i accidentally removed my windows file system agent from commserve client.

    i trying to reinstall the agent and i get the following error:

    "Error Code: [68:174] Description: Failed to install File System Core Package, the credentials entered may not have permission to use WMI on remote machine."

    im tried to reinstall "Simpana" but it identifies that the windows file system agent already installed on the server.

    any proffesional suggestions?

    Hi Mike14,

    Could you copy the Commvault package on the Client machine and do a local installation?

    Also, right click on Setup and run as Administrator should enable you to run installation successfully.

    Finally, please provide log snippet of install.log if you are still having this issue.

    Screenshot is blank. If the GUI is showing the machine as installed, go to install software option and choose uninstall, making sure to check uninstall if unable to contact. This will remove the installed flag in the DB allowing you to push with all the options.

    Hi Liam,

    I dont have that option because that is the commserve server.

    even when im trying to remove the agent through ==>control panel==>progs and features

    i can't to uninstall it without removing more agents.

    there has to be some way to solve it, i hope we will find how.

    Hi Mike, 

    Thanks for the update.

    As this is the Commserve, its likely that the uninstall of the wfs you did requires a reboot which makes the uninstall incomplete. So when, re-installing, it sees the wfs agent is still incomplete.

    Please follow below steps:

    1.) suspend all jobs on commserve, stop commvault services, then perform a reboot. Re-run installation as admin and complete uninstallation process. Then, this will alow a new installation of wfs agent.

    2.) If after reboot, you are still unable to complete uninstall and re-install. Take a Commserve DR backup. Go to Windows Control Panel—> uninstall commvault —> select agent to uninstall (Note- this brings up an option to select an option to uninstall all agents or specific agents) —> remove wfs if its still listed and re-install it.

    3.)Take a registry backup on commserve. Go to Registry key on Commserve, (HKEY_LOCALMACHINE—>Software —>Commvault (look for an installer and rename it to .old) Re-run installation and check if it allows to re-install wfs.

    4.) Ensure you take a DR backup, then Use The microsoft utility cleaner to remove the WFS agent locally on your Commserve, then re-insatll wfs.

    5.) If you have exhausted all the above options. finally take a DR back and run Repair on the Commvault instance. 

    Please take a Commserve DR backup before you proceed with any of the above options.

    Also let me know if you are unsure of the steps involved in the above procedure.

    It's the CommServe? Just run a repair against it.
