Upgrading a Symantec System Recovery (SSR) client remotely fails with the error listed below.

This only occurs when connection to the SSR console is made via SSR Monitor (right-click on remote machine and choose 'Connect to Console').


Cannot deploy the Agent to machine name / ip address

Error E0D3EBC0: Cannot deploy the Agent

Agent installer files missing


The current workaround is to launch the SSR console manually outsided of SSR Monitor and then upgrade the agent.
