    Default Error: Deployment Agent update is in progress

    I'm looking to update from R77.2 to R77.3 on our VSX Cluster members. I believe I have to install the deploymentAgent update first to then be able to then download & installed the HFA for the R77.30 Gaia Software Updates Package? However, when I try to run the installer for the Hotfix or check for updates, it errors with Error: Deployment Agent update is in progress

    I've waited several hours but this hasn't changed. I've tried stop/starting the agent, disable/ enable the agent & rebooted the gateway, but this has all made no difference. The other VSX gateway (VPN2) is fine & reports Build number: 1005 (agent build is up to date). I'm not sure what to do next. Any advice or help appreciated, thanks.

    Sometime it will get stuck...
    I've seen many reasons to this...too many too remember. You can check the size of the deployment agent log file...if its at 2 gig, stop the da service, remove it, start da service again.

    Or...

    Just download the Deployment agent from Checkpoint supportcenter and install the RPM via CLI

    There's nothing in /opt/CPInstLog that's >2GB, but the log file info for package 3 doesn't make sense.

    I'll try the manual download & install via the RPM.

    IIRC log file in older version of agens should be in $DADIR/bin and was called Da.out or something like that.
    But yeah, try the manual upgrade with RPM as described in the knowledgebase, never seen that procedure fail :-)

    To stop the DA processes I use these commands:
    $DADIR/bin/dastop
    dbget installer:stop
    Most of the times this works great.
