Make policies aware of running jobs/tasks.
I would like the Symantec Management policy agent (Software Management Solution Agent) to be aware of any running tasks from the task agent.
This is because running jobs/task fails if a policy starting remediation when there is a running job/task. 
 
For instance:
When a Deployment Job is running that includes Os Image deployment and software tasks and if the agent receives a policy to install more software, the policy does not check whether there is a running task, and then kills running Job / task. This causes the Deployment Job to fail.
 
Symantec tells that the task and the policy plug-in is by design not aware of each other.
