When you navigate to Settings -> All Settings -> Agents/Plug-ings -> Deployment and Migration and client on any of the policies under this path you are presented with an error message, which states that the corrosponding package for the selected policy could not be found. As a result you are unable to deploy any of the plug-ins associated with Deployment Solutions.


 Symantec Management Platform 7.1 SP2


The link between the Plug-in installation policy and the corrosponding package were broken during the initial installation of the platform. The root cause of this is still under investigation.



1) Download the attached XML package and copy it to the Symantec Management Platform (If the issue is only occurring for a single policy only exact the appropriate XML from the attached XML Package)


2) Next, open up command prompt (If you have UAC enabled please ensure you are running as Administrator) and change into the following directory and then execute the following command:


\%InstallDir%\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\Bin\Tools\


ImportExportUtil.exe /import “Path to the XML Package you downloaded in Step 1”


"Be aware Notification Server Commands are case sensative. It is recommened to use the 'Tab' key to generate commands."


3) Once the above command completes successfully, open up the Symantec Management Console and then navigate to "Manage" -> "All Resources" ->  "Package" -> "Software Package" and search the catalog for for the appropriate package name. Find the appropriate package name and then right mouse click on the package and select "Actions" -> "Edit Package"


4) On the "Add or Edit Package" Window, ensure that the "Package Location" is directed to the correct location.
