After upgrade of POA from 5.4 to 5.5 WPE-related task "Install service-WindowsProvisioningEngine-5.5.152 on WPE.hosting.local" failed with the error:
MSI (s) (54!8C) [02:18:36:838]: Product: Windows Provisioning Engine -- PA Windows Provisioning Engine installer Error: AddWpeFirewallPorts error: There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800706D9)
Windows firewall service was disabled on WPE node.
Starting from POA 5.5 WPE installer tries to automatically configure firewall rules, but they can be configured only if Windows Firewall service is started. To fix the task, please start firewall service on WPE node and restart all related failed tasks in task manager.
This behavior will be improved in future in scope of the bug ID POA-82960, please contact your Account Manager to track down the state of the request.
