Technical Solution



On Agent Settings windows, when you click Update Configuration, time of last request is changed. However in Console it is not populated in Resource Manager.



SMP 7.1 SP1, SP2


Cause of issue was related with "EnableNSEventLog" setting in CoreSettings.config. It was set to False,


There is a Core configuration setting which controls all Evt_ dataclasses. If it is  set to "False", system won't log any Evt data, not only policy config requests.

The CoreSettings.config file can be found in:

  • 7.0:  C:\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\Config\
  • 7.1:  C:\ProgramData\Symantec\SMP\Settings

Please do following to remediate this problem:

1. Stop Altiris Services

2. Backup existing CoreSettings.config just in case

3. Update following line and set value to true
 <customSetting key="EnableNSEventLog" type="local" value="true" />

4. Restart Altiris Services
