Recently I started to get a lot of warning messages like this in the Altiris log:
Log File Name: C:\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\nsLogs\a.log
Date: 6/25/2008 10:30:16 AM
Tick Count: 8747765
Host Name: XXXXXXX
Process: w3wp.exe (1928)
Thread ID: XXXX
Description: Cannot find any TCPIP information for machine XXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXX
The message appears every 5 minute after collection update task.
Since there is no computer name, only a GUID. I assumed that the computer was deleted from the database (probably by maintenance task) and some leftover caused the NS to think that it still exists.
In that case, I thought, I can clean the leftovers from the DB and every thing will...
