remote agent error

I am trying to run a remote sampling collection activity on linux. Started vtserver on the target machine of interest and then setup the activity in GUI running on a linux host and set the remote system to the target machine appropriately.

When I start the run, I can see the messages on the target machine about connection acceptance and run started but it errors out with the following message

[ERROR] sampling collector reported error (42): Bad event modifier

Can someone help? My sampling run is EBS with default events of "Clockticks" and "Instructions Retired"

Host: Intel 5160
Remote system: Intel 5460
