Workaround:
 
The clue to this error can be found in one line in the above log:
 
[Tue 05/08/2012 04:04:59.273 PM] mmc.exe[4768,6] Verbose: {Centrify.DeploymentManager.Task.InstallTask}Expector.Expect: command "swjob -a log dbdev1-0407 @ dbdev1:/var/spool/sw".
 
If copy and paste the "swjob -a log dbdev1-0407 @ dbdev1:/var/spool/sw", it will mention the following:
 
Error: Remote Procedure Call error trying ot [un] register depot. It is possible that the daemon is not running on this host.
Error: Failed to register "/var/spool/sw". You must register it later using the "swreg command".
Error: The Executation phase had errors.
 
To fix it, the HPUX swagent should be restarted as follows:
 
#swagentd -r
