Hi @LWhite, welcome to the community.
This issue should be resolved. After you reinstall are you able to connect reliably while they are in the list? Perhaps you could set up GoToAssist v5 Unattended support on some of these computers as well alongside v4, and use v5 to connect the next time this happens so you can see the desktop, and gather v4 logs?
Is this still happening? I am not able to recreate the issue, my v4 Unattended computers are all visible in the v5 desktop console and on the website if I check my devices there.
Unfortunately, I'm still seeing the issue.
While Googling the issue, I saw some older references to computers being reimaged could potentially be an issue. All computers we reimage are to a stock Windows 10 computer with unique UUIDs.
Also, GoTo is never part of the image. That is the last step in our process. After adding to the domain and installing antivirus.
I only mention this because the issue is random and I'm literally "grabbing for straws" here out of desperation.
So process is as follows:
Everything seems to work fine for a couple hours (the shortest time I've seen yet) to a few weeks until..... poof! It drops from the unattended list.
Once we get the computer back we check and GoTo is actually installed and running on the system in question. The service is intact and running.
We uninstall GoTo, reinstall GoTo and everything is working until it disappears again. There appears to be no rhyme or reason to it.
For example, last night I had to assist an end user. I have manually uninstalled and reinstalled GoTo twice before this incident. I was able to RDP to her PC and, for the third time in less than a month, reinstall GoTo.
Everything was working great. This morning I get to work and her PC still showed in the Unattended list (but was greyed out because it was offline at the time). I checked back when I knew she would be in and it was still in the list and now "lit up" (active or on) in the list. Approximately an hour later I check the list again and... you guessed it. POOF! Gone.
Hopefully this novel worth of babble can help steer me in the right direction to get this fixed.
Thanks again for not letting this topic die until we can figure it out!
Did you ever find a solution to this? I am having the same issue with 4.8, computers imaged BEFORE installing GoToAssist, and in a few days they poof. Very frustrating and causing major issues for us.
We are running 4.8 and I have noticed recently that multiple new computers have disappeared from my device list. These computers all have the same Windows 10 image installed, but GoToAssist is installed after renaiming the computer and rebooting. I see them on my list, can connect to them, but then in a few days they are gone.
This is causing major problems. Is there a work around for this? Is this still an issue in v5?
Hi @jpPRL, welcome to the community.
Besides using the same Windows 10 image do they also use all of the same hardware? Do you have access to any of these computers?
It would be helpful to know if the Unattended software is still running on them and in the system tray. If you right-click the system tray icon and select
Unattended Access > Device Group Info, what does it show?
