Re: swremove have error "This target agent cannot access the source"

take a look another way,

can you run swremove only and there will appear a screen from which you can select the product which you wish remove from the server

# swremove
Problems are common to all, but attitude makes the difference

Re: swremove have error "This target agent cannot access the source"

Hi,

Can you give us the output of

#swlist -l product | grep -i NetWorker

and

#swlist | grep -i NetWorker


OR

You can go ahead as said by Johnson by

#swremove and select the product from there -->remove

Re: swremove have error "This target agent cannot access the source"

try restarting swagentd and if it doesnt solve the problem then you may need to reboot the box.

Do you know how that file was missing?
Was it removed manually?
