Issue



When creating a new Task Server job, changing between Client Job and Server Job selection causes the Altiris Console—Web Page Dialog to become non-responsive. This issue may occur if the Notification Server has the following solutions installed:
  • Task Management Pack
  • Out of Band Management Solution
  • Recovery Solution

Once the dialog is non-responsive, Windows Task Manager shows Internet Explorer* using approx. 50 to 99 percent of the CPU processes. Closing out of the console frees up the system resources.
