Altiris RS 6.2.2801 - License and Backup Cleanup
We have 150 licenses for use with the Altiris Recovery Solution. We upgraded to version 6.2.2801 a little while back and have been having consistent issues since that time. We intially had an (re-)install type screen popping up on every machine that previously had the client installed. We made it past that issue, however we do not want this to happen again...
We have approximately 40 PC's that SHOULD have the agent installed to them and be being backed up, however, the Altiris reports 141 licenses IN-USE. By using the pre-created report "," there are 132 computers with the agent installed. How are more licenses in-use than agents installed? How do I correct this and remove the agent silently from those 90+ machines that should not be being backed up? I do not want end-users to know that the client is being touched (removed).
A second issue is space contstraints that we have recently encountered. We have alloted some SAN space for these backups - 450 GB. We are only backing up Documents and Settings, not full systems and this should be more than enough space for around 40 PC backups. However, with all 141/132(?) PC's data being thrown onto the system, we have no available space left. How can I remove all of these obsolete snapshots and extraneous backups? If need be, can I simply delete all of the blob files and allow the Recovery System to grab a new backup on the next scheduled run for each PC?
All thoughts and help is greatly appreciated...
