Hi there, since upgrading to 9.5 (and the latest patch release) I'm seeing very poor performance and connection issues from my PC. Often have to open several KRC windows to get it to connect, just sits there spinning the Connecting message. Same for KLC.
Once connected the session will often freeze and again, I have to open several windows until one of them starts working properly.
Don't recall anything like this in 9.4.
Any tips on clearing out old components related to KRC/KLC? I'm sure I would have heard if the rest of the team were suffering to the same degree....
lharris FTW! We use Roboform across all our workstations. Kaseya now has an article addressing this that they provided to us a couple of days ago:
We have an open ticket regarding KLC/KRC. Support is being responsive and came up with a workaround for us. In our case, when we open a KLC window, it will not connect. Opening a 2nd window connects, as do all subsequent KRC connections. Leaving that KLC window open keeps us online for the most part. We're collecting debugging info to determine where the problem is. I would urge you to open a ticket with support at severity level 2 or 1 so you get to someone who can help with your issue.
We have also been experiencing this issue since the latest patch. This is very frustrating, as I just switched us back to KLC/KRC after using the old RC for months due to bugs with the new KRC.
topdogpc, Thanks for the workaround tip. Hopefully they get this fixed soon as my superiors are getting sick of all the bugs with KLC/KRC, and I only switched back since it seemed like it was acting more reliably for me.
We also have this issue. We are also seeing that techs have a hard time "double connecting" to an endpoint. I hadn't put in a ticket yet because we are working on some other issues we found but I think I will now!
Could you guys please post your ticket numbers so I can hop on those tickets? Thanks.
Not sure if it's related, but I just opened ticket 231192 a few minutes ago - all of our agents are suddenly flopping off and then on-line. We can live connect to them in the offline state, but cannot use any of our automation. Updated to 188.8.131.52 last night and rebooted after the update. We're effectively down at this point.
I havent been able to install live connect at all since R8. I run the first time as administrator and liveconnect works after that but if i click onthe blue link to take over a machine i get logged out of the Kaseya server compleetly. This happens to me on IE 10/11 , W7/W8. am I the only one?
zimou13 You're probably using classic Live Connect. This is because currently updated browsers no longer use ActiveX. You're better off using IETab (an extension that supports ActiveX) or converting to the new Live Connect.
zimou13 you can check the version of LC here -- System - Server Management - Default Settings - Use new Live Connect when clicking the Live Connect button in Quickview That needs to be Yes to use the new version.
Thank you so much for letting us know about opening multiple windows to get KLC working! We've been pulling our hair out trying to figure out a solution, and at least this gives us a temporary workaround. I would have put in a(nother) ticket for this, but honestly we already have so many insanely important tickets open with them right now, I can't keep up with anymore!
We also have about half our techs needing to use the work-around by opening first failed session, the rest work without any issues.
From what I've found:
- Machines with issues have been around a while, meaning they had the older versions of Live Connect and Kaseya Remote. Pre 9.4 v of Kaseya Server/agent.
- Machines that work have been newer machines that came into production after we'd been on 9.4.
I've done revo uninstaller and manually searched all registry to remove any and all traces of Live Connect and still cannot get this to work properly.
My next test on a problem machine is to ensure UAC is off and run in the Kaseya Live Connect installation as admin. Seems like its NOT an issue with the Kserver, and simply something wonky with the Windows install itself or traces of older Kaseya software glitching things. Waiting for Kaseya support to address this is likely an effort in futility. I'll post back here if I figure something out...
We're on 184.108.40.206
Best of luck jeads . Keep us updated on your progress.
Do you use Roboform or something of the like? If so, add an exception for KaseyaLiveConnect.exe ...I've been problem free for about three weeks now. Hope this helps!
Yes, I'm a Roboform user and disabling this has fixed it now.
