Webroot Plugin 220.127.116.110 for Automate - API disconnects immediately
I enter all of the necessary API Authentication info and successfully authenticate. It shows “Good Connection”. I go to Clients and none of them show. Back to Settings and can see the API Authentication has disconnected. I had this same issue with the Sophos plugin which was fixed by adding the Automate User to the Sophos Groups (Classes) that were created when the Plugin was installed. There are no groups for the Webroot plugin. I have given my account access to the Webroot plugin within permissions. I’ve re-authenticated to Automate with the new permissions, but it continues to behave the same. What do I need to do to keep the Webroot API connected within the Plugin so that I can work with the tenants?
Autmate poll management console failing
Hello,I work for an MSP that uses Connectwise Automate and the Webroot plugin. Recently we did some security hardening of our network and lost some functionality. Poll Management Console isn’t pulling any data, Auto Deployment isn’t working, and we can’t access the my.webrootanywhere.com site in the My Webroot Anywhere tab. Is there a list of what servers need to be whitelisted on our network to be able to allow communications between our Automate server and the Webroot SecureAnywhere servers? We’re running:Webroot Plugin for LabTech Software v. 18.104.22.168Webroot SecureAnywhere with Unity v. 22.214.171.124

Migrate existing Webroot client to MSP licensing
We have recently onboarded a client that had Webroot prior to us on SOME of their workstations. No one seems to know where the licenses came from previously (prior IT provider or if they were a direct purchase) or how to access the console to enable us to cleanly uninstall and start from scratch. We've deployed Automate along with the latest plugin and it has correctly installed Webroot on the workstations that didn't already have it (from before we were involved). Those machines show correctly in our console. However, short of going through the computer list one by one I'm trying to find a way to determine the workstations that have the client's previous licensing installed so we can move over to our account. Is there a reg key I can use to determine which are installed using our base key or something similar? Could this redeployment functionality be added to the Plugin in the future? I'm sure the is a pretty common scenario.
Automate Webroot 3 monitors do not always auto-resolve
Okay, I can't be sure of all monitors here, but there are several Connectwise Automate internal monitors created specifically by the Webroot plugin. They are designated "Webroot 3 <monitor name>". The Webroot 3 Stale Agents monitor, as I understand it, is supposed to monitor for out of date definitions. We do get alerts from this monitor, which is listed as running every hour. However, I have quite a few instances (I can't say all, but I've confirmed it today that it is happening) where the agents resolve (AV definitions up-to-date) and the alert itself never resolves, but stays open. This causes a lot of checking of these alerts only to find there is only a problem perhaps 20% of the time (the rest of the time, it has resolved itself), which wastes a lot of time. Is anyone else experiencing this issue with this Webroot 3 monitor, or any of the other ones?
How to uninstall Webroot with ConnectWise Automate
I find myself answering this question regularly on the LTG forums so I thought I'd share it here too. The plugin provided script to uninstall webroot always fails. The script will download the latest MSI and attempts to uninstall webroot using that. This (almost) always fails because it was (almost) never installed with the latest version. There is a further issue showing the error message which makes troubleshooting this more difficult. Only shows "T". After much digging you'll find its short for "This command is only available for products that are installed" and it actually performs nothing. The fix? CWA runs as the SYSTEM account. If you send [b]c:program fileswebrootwrsa.exe -uninstall[/b] from CWA ([i]as shell[/i] in your script) there won't be any prompts and webroot should be gone within 5 to 10 seconds. If this still fails then webroot had further issues and will need to be ripped out manually. Be sure to clear that wrdata folder (at [b]c:programda
