1) Open the registry and go to ‘HKEY_LOCAL-MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\Deployment’ and check for the presence of the ‘DebugLogs’ string value. If it is not present, add a string value and point to a directory where you would like logs saved.  Cory believes this registry key is currently set to ‘c:\altiris\altiris agent\logs’.

2) Go to the directory mentioned in #1 above.  Delete all logs that are present.

3) Go to ‘c:\windows\debug’ and delete the ‘netsetup’ file.

From the Altiris Console do the following:

1) From Jobs and Tasks create a new ‘Apply System Configuration’ Task.
2) Create  a new ‘Use a predefined system configuration’.
a. Name: Test1
b. Domain: Put in your fully qualified domain name (FQDN).  E.g.  If your domain name is ‘asc.OUtest.com’, enter this in the domain field.  DO NOT enter the netbios...

This is a frequently asked question on forum about required IIS7 settings for Package Server configuration and there are how-tos available. But I though to put it in a simple manner in form of image which much easier in understanding. Where “red circled” are only not required components

Hope this would be helpful.

Thanks,

Deployment Solution 7.x reports are very easy to get and can be saved in many supported formats.

Most of the DS users already be knowing this but this would be helpful to those new users who are exploring the DS afresh :)

Following is the way to get the DS reports:

On Symantec Management Console > Reports > All Reports > Reports > Deployment and Migration > Computers with Deployment task execution status > {Use filters as required} and “Save as”

 

Hope this would be bit helpful.

Thanks,

In preparation for our DS6.x to 7.x upgrade path, I'm looking at how to document DS6.x jobs. Ideally, I'd like to be able to point a SQL Script at a DS6.x Job and have the entire job nicely documented as an HTML report.

Looking at our job trees, I need to document first and foremost,

  1. 'Copy File' tasks
  2. 'Run Script' tasks

These make up the bulk of our DS6.x jobs. Our imaging tasks are typically done with automation 'Run Scripts'.  After a couple of hours I've been able to come up with some SQL which documents a Copy Task as two tables. The first table gives the job details (copy src, dst etc) and the second documents the return code behaviour.

 

Chucking this up to connect so I don't lose it. ;-)

Something i couldnt find very easily was how to use the model token like in DS6.9. Alot of different ways using VBS were found however its easy enough to create a token under Settings > Deployment > Tokens.

Heres the SQL Query i'm using:

 SELECT DISTINCT [vHWComputerSystem].[Model]
FROM [dbo].[vComputer]
JOIN [dbo].[vHWComputerSystem]ON [dbo].[vComputer].[Guid] = [dbo].[vHWComputerSystem].[_ResourceGuid]
WHERE [dbo].[vComputer].[Guid] = '%COMPUTERID%'

Hope this helps.
