Notification Server 6.0


The Altiris.NS.TaskSynchronization assembly was broken or missing from the GAC (Global Assembly Cache) on the Notification Server.


Uninstalling and reinstalling Software Delivery Solution resolved the issue by generating the missing Assembly during the reinstall. This will work with other missing Assemblies for other Solutions as well (IE Carbon Copy)
