We welcome you to the new home of the Altiris Beta Program! The beta process has been moved to Symantec Connect, where we can take advantage of the existing community.  As part of your beta experience, you may submit feedback in the form of articles, forum postings, and comments.  At any time, you may submit feedback directly to  Your activity on Connect will earn you points, which you can submit for great prizes as well. We enjoy rewarding those who participate in the process.

The general beta page will contain the following:
  • Welcome message
  • General instructions for using Connect to download beta product
  • Release notes of current beta products
  • Links to current beta products
  • Calendar showing the upcoming beta cycles for our products
We are also making another change to our overall beta process.  In the past, we have created beta cycles around our point solutions.  In an effort to streamline our product delivery, we will be creating beta cycles around suites of solutions.  Our Client Management Suite of products will be released as a single beta.  We will also be supplying beta cycles for our service packs as well.

To get started with a beta, please click on the link for the beta you would like to participate in, and we will get you approved within 1 business day.  You will receive a notification once your subscription has been approved.

Thanks for your participation and help.  We look forward to working with you.

Best Regards,

I found that most of the forums in the Endpoint Management and Virtualisation category were not listed this morning, and have reported this to the admins. I wonder if your error is part of the same problem.

If your issue has been solved, please use the "Mark as Solution" link on the most relevant thread.

Looks like the email address in the body of the message included a typo (which is now fixed).

The email address at the bottom of the message was correct.

Thanks for the heads up Pascal.
