Dear Symantec,

When trying to find out what the command line arguments for AeXNSC.exe are, I looked in:

http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=HOWTO1567

and

http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=HOWTO36805

These are both SymWISE articles which purport to include the command line arguments for the AeXNSC.

However, these say that you need to specify /NOADDREMOVE to NOT put an entry into the Add & Remove Programs, but if you omit this for installing the Symantec Management Agent 7.1.2, then it should put an entry into the A&R P. However, it does NOT!

When I pushed the Altiris Agent down to another computer, the parameter the Altiris Agent Push used was "ADDREMOVE" and then this put the entry into the Add & Remove Programs.

Can the documentation PLEASE be updated to include the ADDREMOVE command line argument? Alternatively, could you please rationalise the two articles into one for any Altiris Agent version?

Kindest regards,

QuietLeni
