Cause

The remote Agent Handler is unable to resolve the FQDN of the ePO server to an IP address.

Solution

Resolve the DNS issue or add the FQDN and IP address of the ePO server to the hosts file (located at C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts) on the remote Agent Handler.

Example:

host.name.com       10.10.10.3
