Jobs for a client will fail with “Job manager lost message channel unexpectedly”.
When browsing the client plugins from "Manage Clients" or through a "Backup Selection", a spinning wheel shows up and may appear to hang. It may return a "Error: Provider 'NVBUPit' failed" error.
The “Check Access” and “Firewall Test” will complete successfully for the affected client.
If NetVault is uninstalled on the client and reinstalled as a NetVault Server, then it can browse its own plugins. However, while still as a server, if it’s added to another server the same would happen.
Looking at the trace logs a similar content may be found:
nvwsworker AAAA (Server)
4 MESSAGE :05232 1080 0 004738.520465 Send 'CORE_PLG_GET_CLIENT_PROPERTIES_SCREEN_MSG' (2147) to NetVault:BBBB

4 MESSAGE :88561 1080 0 004738.575166 Send 'PLUGIN_DISPLAY_DISPOSABLE_SCREEN_MSG' (1717) to NetVault:BBBB
From the above, in essence we’re seeing that:
1. nvwsworker sends 'CORE_PLG_GET_CLIENT_PROPERTIES_SCREEN_MSG' to cliproxy BBBB
2. Which sends CORE_PLG_GET_CLIENT_PROPERTIES_SCREEN_MSG to nvcoreplg on the client
3. In the meantime nvwsworker times out
If a wireshark or tcpdump capture is done on the client. Looking through the packets, there’d a be sequence where the client is trying to send the installed plugins info and retransmitting it a couple of times before issuing a TCP_RST. This can be found several times.
