I get these errors sometimes from agent systems before they have had a first successful update/run. Sometimes the error will clear up on it's own but now always.

Any idea(s) what is going on? The master/agent can both ping each other by IP and name.

You may have forgotten to add a PTR record for the IP address of the system. Try this to find out: dig -x [ip-address]

Does look like some DNS issues in play.
