Common causes of the problem are:

  • The agent cannot start because the same type of agent is already running. The existing agent may be stopping or hung. In this case, do the following in the order presented:
  • Manually stop the existing agent. Enter:

    kill -9 pid
  • Manually start the agent. Enter:

    haagent -start agent_name -sys sys_name
  • If the same type of agent is not running, a bug in the agent code may cause the frequent crashes. In this case, contact Symantec Technical Support.
