SQL compliance Manager

I tried to deploy sql compliance agent on server, but I got a message that "object reference not set to an instance of an object "

 

  • I have installed the SQL Compliance Agent / Manager, however after registering a server the Agent Status shows "Enabled; Update Requested" from the compliance manager. Apparently it has never updated properly. I have verified that the "SQL Compliance Agent" service is running on the registered server as well. Also of more concern when I manually logged into the registered server I now receive a message indicated that Idera created a file named "C:\Program" which may be causing issues with the server. When I open that file the contents are as follows: "Files\Idera\SQLcompliance\AgentTraceFiles\$$$$_test.tmp" It appears that Idera couldn't handle "C:\ Program Files\.." The issue is that whenever I try to rename or delete that file I receive an access denied message. Any help will be much appreciated.
