I've had problems with the ZCM agent service failing to start since the beginning. The version hasn't mattered (10.0-10.1.1) Patch levels on the machine don't matter. (Vista Business Sp1 32-bit), and setting the service to recover in the services.msc doesn't matter.

All of my 250 Vista systems will experience this issue from time to time, where the ZCM agent service fails to start. It could be during a reboot, or a login and logout.

Anyone have a fix or process to check? Without the Agent service, I kinda can't manage my world.
