AppInsight for IIS: Error code 16008 network path not found

Error: The network path was not found.

Cause: This is a general error message returned by Windows when a networking component is malfunctioning. This may be caused by not having the appropriate root or intermediate certificate on the remote IIS server.

Resolution: For details, see the log on the SolarWinds Platform server located at: ([ALLUSERSPROFILE]\ProgramData\Solarwinds\Logs\APM\RemoteExecutableStarter.log). Following are some of the more common reasons why this error message might be returned by Windows:

  • Review AppInsight for IIS requirements and permissions.
  • Ensure you have access to the shared storage drive.
  • Firewalls can block traffic to the network which could generate this message. Review .Try temporarily disabling any software or hardware firewalls to isolate the problem.
  • Like firewalls, some anti-spyware tools have the same effect. Try temporarily disabling any anti-spyware programs and restart the computer to isolate the problem.

When finished, follow steps in Assign AppInsight for IIS to nodes in SAM.
