An error occurs in the Altiris log if the Daily Schedule runs prior to an import of data occuring from Altiris Connector 6.5.

The error will show as:

Source: Altiris.NS.Scheduling.Schedule.OnSchedule
Description: Failed to process shared schedule for item 'Log File Purge Policy'. Exception: The specified log file directory 'C:\Program Files\Altiris\Connector\ImportReports' does not exist


Altiris Connector 6.5


This happens due to the folder ImportReports not being created yet in the path C:\Program Files\Altiris\Connector\.


To remedy this problem, as soon as Data Connector 6.5 is installed (either via a clean install or after an upgrade), if a user creates a folder called ImportReports in the path C:\Program Files\Altiris\Connector\, the error will not occur in the Altiris Log when the Daily Schedule runs.

Alternatively, if a user does an import of data from DataConnector straight after install, the error will not occur as the folder ImportReports is created when an import of data occurs.
