The HP Client Manager console is not able to download files if proxy credentials are needed to access the Internet. The following error may appear in the Notification Server logs:

Unable to download file at method DownloadSysidXML HPCMSSupportedSysIds_6_1.xml from for reason. ( Unhandled exception. Type=System.Net.WebException Msg=The remote server returned an error: (407) Proxy Authentication Required. Src=System StackTrace= at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.CheckFinalStatus() at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.EndGetResponse(IAsyncResult asyncResult) at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetResponse() at System.Net.WebClient.DownloadFile(String address, String fileName) at Altiris.HPCMS.HPToolUpdaterTask.DownloadSysidXML(String sSourceFile, String sDestination) )

Additionally, HP Tools Update will not recognize or download the latest HP Instant Support System Health Scan or HP System Software Manager.
