I have reset all the Altiris services account with the new password. All the services can start but still cannot open the Console.
 
Please advise what else I should be checking.

Did you follow this procedure?
http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO10009

Method 1 should work in restoring console access.  You may need to restart services and/or the server after attempting Method 1.

Does this restore console access?
