In the documentation, I read that if WMI or WinAPI discovery tasks are
used, a Windows proxy machine must be used.

Are there any such limitations deploying the Adaptive Agent to discovered

I am trying to deploy the agent to a test machine. When I do it through a
W2K3 server running ZCM, it deploys fine. When I deploy it through a SLES
10 server, the status shows Error: Unable to connect to machine (the
Windows firewall is turned off).

On the System Information tab, I get this information:

Message ID: Unable to determine setting:
