Remote Installation of Altiris Dagent for Windows 8

Created: 21 Feb 2013 | 8 comments

Has anyone been succesful in remotely deploying the altiris agent from the Deployment Console 6.9 SP5 ?  I've found that it comes back with network path not found every time.  I'm able to ping the machine and also can reach the c$ share with no issue.  I've turned off user access control on the windows 8 machine and looking to see if there is anything else I need to turn off in order to make it work.  If you install the agent manually it does work....


Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm using Deployment Console 6.9 SP5....I did check date/time anyway but that wasn't the fix.

Odd thing is if I install the agent manually it works fine and reports back into the DS issue

Where do I find the download for Deployment Solution 6.9 SP5 MR3?  I only see MR2 on the Symantec business download site.
