swinstall giving RPC errors

Hi all

 

Just trying to install Ignite, and i'm getting the following:

 

 =======  11/11/11 05:27:45 MST  BEGIN install AGENT SESSION (pid=29413)    │
│ │          (jobid=testcoin-0002)                                             │

Any ideas?

 

I have restarted swagentd

This looks like the problem you have to solve.  Can the system talk to itself?
