GFI RemoteManagement Windows Service check - Group Policy Client



  • I have a total of 4 machines with GFI RM agent on them. 3 are W8 and one is W10 (relatively new installs).

    Under daily checks, the Windows Services Check - Group Policy Client I am getting

    *Status Stopped

    • 7 consecutive failures, status STOPPED
    • 101 consecutive failures, status STOPPED
    • 75 consecutive failures, status STOPPED

    When you click the link the info just repeats itself. These PC's are running fine, so is it an issue or not?



  • I found this link, So I guess I need to make this change on every PC?



  • So the answer is to change the default behavior of Windows 8 instead of changing the client? Does MS's disabling of the service when not in use somehow break GFI?



  • @Dashrender That's the question I had for the experts! I found it funny that the answer was change windows vs make a change in GFI RM (perhaps you can't). At the moment I only have W8 PC's using GFI.



  • That certainly is not a solution, that is a work around. Did they tell you what else may be affected by this change? What other Windows systems may now have problems because of it.

    That's all the information I found online.
