Hi all,

Following on from my previous installation issues Here, I now seem to be unable to get the agent to connect.

The event log states:
Agent authentication of <Server> failed because the agent is not registered.

I'm not sure what that means, or how to register the agent...

Any ideas?

I've attached screenshots and event logs

Hi Craig,

Please try the following.

1) Stop the Automate 11 Agent service.
2) In the Automate Enterprise 11 SMC, navigate to Options/Default Properties/Miscellaneous.
3) If the Agent port is not set to 9700, change in to that and click OK.
4) Open the Registry Editor, regedit.exe.
5) Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AutoMate\Automate Agent 11\TaskService\Agent.
6) In the right hand box, right click in the white space and New/String Value, and name it RegistrationUsername, then set it's value to administrator.
7) Repeat the above step again, however user the name RegistrationPassword and set the value to the Automate Enterprise administrator user's password, defaults to password.
8) Restart the Automate 11 Agent service.
9) The agent should authenticate and re-register, and if successful, the two string values you created in the registry editor will disappear.

If you are still having issues after the above, would it be possible to set-up a remote support session where we can take a closer look at this issue? If this is possible please send an email over to with a list of your availability. Also please verify the Operating System of the machine in question and it's bit level, as well as the version and bit level of the AutoMate software.
Note: Please reference this forum thread in your email.
