The alert “Agent installation in the target host is failed since 42005 port is already in use” occurs normally when VIS Agent Port is used in the target machine for another application.


1) Check the port listing in the target machine by using the following steps:

  - Go to 'Run' and open cmd prompt
  - Execute the following command in command prompt:
           Netstat -ano | find “42005”
  - If that port is in listening state, It will show “Listening” as result.

2) If you still want to add that target host, then please change the port of that application [which uses 42005 port] and try to re-add the target host from the BDR server.
