SCDPM 2007 – DPM 2007 can’t connect to service control manager: ID 277

March 24, 2008 at 1:52 pm in Uncategorized by mikeresseler

I was deploying DPM 2007 agents to servers and got this error : can't connect to service control manager: ID 277

After doing some troubleshooting i hunted this problem down to this cause: The servers I wanted to install these agents on didn't have A-records in the correct DNS zone. Adding these solved my problems and i could continue adding agents.

Hope this helps other people digging for a solution to this error
