NSE processing


 The Notification Server log is due to the fact that the NSE is created in the EvtInbox directoy. The Notification Server will try to process it before it is done being copied. This can cause an error in the log. Example: "Failed to move file to be processed C:\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\NSCap\EvtInbox\handheld.nse Error -2147024864”. With a normally loaded Notification Server, the message is rare, and the file will process as soon as it is completely transferred in most cases.



Change the line in the .INI being used for the AeXNSInvCollector.exe to place the files in the evtqueue or put them in postevent.aspx.

  1. aexnsinvcollector.exe /hidden /url "http://(ServerName)/aexns/postevent.asp" /useguid
  2. Change the line to point the files to the EvtQueue and do the following with the NS Configurator.
    In the configurator Core Settings> Events Settings> Event Dispatcher> Dispatcherthrottledelay change the value to 1000.
