Question
Without having to install anything special or visiting each package server manually, is there any way to automatically have the Package Server resend their package status?

Answer
This can be done with a fairly simple VB Script as follows:

Option Explicit
Dim psagent, agent

set agent = CreateObject("Altiris.AeXClient")
set psagent = agent.ClientPolicyMgr.ClientAgent( "Altiris.AeXNSCPkgSvr" )

'----------------------------------------------
' Resend Package Status from a Package Server.
'----------------------------------------------
psagent.ResendPackagesStatus()
