Altiris Agent Blacklist
I am getting this error in the Altiris Log Viewer:

Description: Attempt to save messaging resource with guid psyt-HICSA-TA (0091b3c0-85cf-46bc-b498-45f810055f67) has been blocked by the Host Resource Blacklist.
There are no computers in the Blacklisted Host Computers Filter.
In looking up the error I found this article pointing to the issue being related to having multiple NS servers. We only have one NS server, so the cause in this article appears to not be related to our issue.
Further research on this issue found this article here:
But the results of the query are:
BlacklistDate Resource2Guid Resource2Name ********** Resource1guid Resource1Name _resourceguid name ********** MergeKeyName MergeKeyValue
2013-01-18 08:55:31.477 NULL NULL ********** NULL NULL NULL NULL ********** NULL NULL
Which appears to also be not helpful in finding out why these machines are being blacklisted. The query also revealed that there are thousands of computers on this list going back 4 months. Does anyone have any other suggestions on what I can try to determine why the agents are being blacklisted, and why the built in process refered to in the article above appears to not be working?
