Backup "verify install" fails due to invalid Windows temp folder


  • Backup agent install completes but Backup > Install/Remove page shows "verify failed".
  • Kaseya Agent service log (by default, c:\program files(x86)\kaseya\<server GUD>\agentmon.log) on target machine has "GetTempFileName() failed" error shown below

2015/03/04 14:48:33.492 [cbb0]: runProcessAsUser: user=kadministrator, domain=, appName="C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe", cmdLine=""C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe"...", flag=0x1, timeout=7200
2015/03/04 14:48:41.914 [240d0]: GetTempFileName() failed. Code 267


  • Windows is configured with invalid temp folder, or Kaseya "agent credential" user does not have permissions to the configured folder



1) log onto the agent machine as the "agent credential" user (as configured on Agent > Set Credential page)

2) go to System Properties > Advanced tab > Environment Variables

3) locate TEMP value under "System Variables"



4) ensure the value is a valid folder path, and test browsing to it from Windows Explorer in case there is a permission problem


5) edit the TEMP path in the "System variables" list in System Properties to something where the "agent credential" user will have full permission or grant full access to the existing folder

6) attempt to "verify" the installation again
