Metadata import task stuck...
Some background, We've been using wsus to manage patching. Now that we've had client management up and running a few months, I went to start testing the patch process.
When we installed Altiris, we setup the metadata import ahead of time. Its been running on its own since then..or so I thought.
I checked yesterday, and there's a import task that's been running for 658 hours. Since Nov 21...
My initial instict was to try to cancel it. Its been stuck "stopping" ever since. I've tried restarting services, and restarting the entire server, no luck.
I was able to manually run an update, but when I try to create a new software update policy based on what was downloaded - that action is stuck in a "start pending" state.
