Sync Agent scheduled task fails to run

If a Sync Agent is failing to check in on a regular basis, check the computer on which the Agent is deployed. You can find more information about failures using the Intellischool Sync Agent view in Event Viewer under Applications and Services Logs.

If the log doesn't have any useful troubleshooting information, check the history of the "IntellischoolSyncAgent" task in Windows Task Scheduler.
