The Deployment Solution Agent (7.x) comes in as an all or nothing bundle. Once installed the agent will run all of its tasks whenever it finds it suitable, without giving administrators a chance to control what should or should not be done.

The iLO inventory is one such task that the Deployment Agent runs everytime the agent is started. Given you can't disabled the inventory process you cannot either prevent the events related to running the task.

This means that if you have 10,000 computers starting on Monday morning all with the Deployment Agent installed you will get 10,000 RILOE Capture Event messages sent to the SMP.

As previously stated with the DS Agent it's an all or nothing deal, but thankfully some Agent built-in feature can be used here to prevent the undesired messages from living the workstation:

Hey KCUG - Don, Amy, Matt (all from Gentiva) and myself (from Cerner) were able to attend the Altiris 7.5 summit in Salt Lake last week.

They have published the sessions and the slides are available for download - https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/blogs/75-summit-november-2013-slides-and-videos

If you have any questions, post them here and I'm sure one of us will be able to answer anything that might come up.

Symantec Deployment Solutions is dependent on the use of pre-boot operating systems in the management of workstation and server systems. The pre-boot environment is delivered to target workstation and server systems via network PXE servers or through the use of physical devices and media. This process has the potential for exposure to possible malicious activity from a person who may have already breached network security, either physically or through a remote network connection, or from a malicious but authorized network user. This paper will address these types of secondary security exposures. ...
