  1. While adding new Windows service node to Plesk Automation (PA) 11.5 task 'Prepare node to PA agent installation' failed with the following error:

    Failed to execute command '/usr/local/pem/roles//PPA/Ensure-PrimaryDNSSuffix-Empty.vbs'. Check logs in 'c:\POA_Deploy' at host '192.0.0.1' for more details about the reasons of failure.
    
  2. In /var/log/poa.debug.log:
