Creating the 5.6.1 installer works, well it's listed and downloadable. However pushing the 5.6.1 install via EMS to a client PC broke FortiClient completely. The install ran but when the laptop rebooted FC had disappeared completely, looks like the uninstall of the previous client worked but the 5.6.1 install failed. So I rebooted the laptop and downloaded the 5.6.1 installer from the EMS server but when running it get "The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package". Now manually installing 5.4.4 build created by EMS. Once that's installed I'll reboot and try 5.6.1 again.
Upon creation of a FortiClient 5.6.1 installation package when created by the Enterprise Management Server (EMS), the package encounters an error. The issue occurs if EMS downloads FortiClient 5.6.1 from the FortiGuard network. When the error occurs, EMS displays the following message:
"The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2711.”
