Problem
Task Server has been installed and its Agent and sub-agents have been deployed to some of the environment. However, the computers that have not had any of these agents deployed to them are recording the following warning in their agent.log files:

Priority: 2
Date: 4/13/2007 11:27:09 AM
Tick Count: 58815843
Host Name: Name
Process: AeXNSAgent.exe (2268)
Thread ID: 7800
Module: AeXNSAgent.exe
Source: Agent
Description: Object Altiris.ClientTaskAgent is not installed: Invalid class string (-2147221005). This situation should be resolved once the agent rollout has been completed.

Environment
Notification Server 6.0.6074 R3
Task Server 6.0.x

Cause
The Server Settings > Notification Server Infrastructure > Task Server > Agent Configuration policy is associated with the All Computers collection by default, which is why all resources are receiving configuration information for the Client task Agent in their Client Settings Policies, which is causing the NSAgent to record these warnings.

Resolution
Replace the All Computers collection association with the With Client Task Agent Installed collection.
