I attended a SQL Server user group just before christmas and I found it pretty illuminating. Well worth the trip out. Altiris administrators have to wear many hats, and SQL Server knowledge is more than useful -it's critical for a smooth running Altiris setup.

I strongly advise you join a SQL User group near you. At mine they provided free pizza and we could bring in a beer from the bar downstairs.... Not that this was my primary reason for going of course....

You might not of course understand what they are saying,  what they are doing, or even why they are doing it... but in time you might ;-)

And making connections with SQL admins could turn out to be very useful in a time of need. And, I am of course assuming you are already a member of your local Altiris Group... right??!?

Kind Regards,
Ian./

How, where to find the latest Architecture, Planning, Implementation and Design Guide for Altiris

There was a time where we were not having any "Architecture" guideline documentation for such complex Altiris framework... Now, we have a lot, and when TECHs are talking about the "Design" doc, they are not always talking about the same. ;-P

I found main 4 below: Please, provide any additional, update you’ll find in there :)

Note that the following applies to and was tested on Altiris NS 6.0 SP3 R13, but may work with some adjustments on SMP 7.x as well (untested).

On some occasions, you may need to move the Altiris Agent on your Package Server from one drive to another, particularly if the first drive (probably C:) is out of space or was incorrectly installed to begin with.  The following procedure will accomplish this, without having to re-replicate possibly dozens or hundreds of GB of packages (which is what will happen if you do this the traditional way of uninstalling/reinstalling core agent/reinstalling Package Server Agent).

How to move the Package Server from One Drive to Another (without re-replicating 10's of GB of Packages)

 

In some cases, the Altiris Agent and Package Server Agent may get installed to the C: drive instead  of the usual D: drive (depending on the particular machine's configuration). ...
