Windows agent fails to communicate with the server

I installed fresh latest beta server and after installing the first agent 2.1.1 I get first this ERROR 7030 in my event log:

The OCS Inventory Service service is marked as an interactive service.  However, the system is configured to not allow interactive services.  This service may not function properly.

and then a lot of these ERROR 20:

Service encounter error <OCS Inventory NG Agent encounter an error (exit code is 4 => Failed to talk with Communication Server)>.

the URL is accessible but shows ERROR 400 bad request if I try to access it with a browser

Bad Request

Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.

Apache/2.2.15 (CentOS) Server at ocs Port 443


If the problem could be solved by allowing "interactive services" then I don't think I want to make that modification to the whole domain.

P.S. I then installed the agent (ocsinventory-agent.noarch 0: on the server itself and after running the  /usr/sbin/ocsinventory-agent twice I get in the agent log twice the same thing:

[Wed Apr  8 14:48:25 2015][info] Accountinfo file doesn't exist. I create an empty one.
[Wed Apr  8 14:48:26 2015][info] PROLOG_FREQ has changed since last process(old=,new=24)
[Wed Apr  8 14:50:31 2015][info] Accountinfo file doesn't exist. I create an empty one.
[Wed Apr  8 14:50:32 2015][info] PROLOG_FREQ has changed since last process(old=,new=24)

and server still shows all 0's

Machines in DB 0
Machines Inventoried 0
Machines contacted today 0
Machines Inventoried today 0
Machines not seen in more than 30 day(s) 0
Number of SNMP devices 0

is the new beta functional? I hate the old interface so this the only reason I was willing to try this product.

The beta is not full functional. A RC will be published in few weeks.

Which errors have you in ocsinventory.log file?

linux version installed is too old and no more supported. Please install latest.

error 400 means that mod_perl module is enabled on ocs server. This url is for inventories only and not web access. To access gui, use http://@ip_server_ocs/ocsreports/
