Altiris won't open

Created: 14 Oct 2008 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 1 comment


I had a DS 6.8 SP1 set up for months on a VMWARE using Win2k3 for my testing , were using to flush patch, playing around , install reinstall, etc ....

Then all of the sudden I get this : "Unable to connect to the alttiris Deployment server DB Management Service. Please make sure this service has been started and is running corectly."


1) obv I went to see the service & it is off , tried to turn it on, get this msg -->error 2: the system can't find the file specified.

2) checked event logs,

first got few errors

"The Deployment Server Engine was unable to connect to the Altiris Deployment Server DB Management service. Please make sure this service is running."

Then got

see large amout of MSSQLSERVER error Event ID 701. ( There is insufficient system memory to run this query.) --> restarted the srv ( no change)

--> need to do few final tests before finalising ... really dont feel like reinstalling ...

Any sugestions ?!?!?1
