Hi Connect Members,

Any change which is intentional can be recorded, but in case if its not something not noticed & specially with workstations running windows Xp , it can create problems & disappointment when things dont work as expected, Than suddenly we think what has changed or what we have changed, No worries, not to think any more, Microsoft has a tool that will not only let u know what are the changes but help you to troubkeshoot the XP systems issues, It works in following scenario-

1. Software Programs—installed applications, such as those listed in Add/Remove Programs
2. Windows hotfixes and other OS updates
3. Windows drivers and services
4. ActiveX controls downloaded via Internet Explorer
5. Browser Helper Objects (BHOs)—typically toolbars and other items that load with your browser
6. Auto-Start Extensibility Points (ASEPs)—programs that start automatically without user action.

I have used a...

A training course on configuring and using Intel vPro Technology in an Altiris environment can be requested from Symantec training

The course summary is posted below, and can also be found at the Symantec Education site:

Do you want to know which client agents are available for Mac? The Mac agent is available for the Altiris Notification Server, supporting versions 10.3.9 through 10.5.x. Solutions available for managing Apple's Mac computers include the following: Inventory, Software Delivery, and PC Anywhere. The Deployment solution doesn't currently offer a client for Mac. Altiris says that they are working on adding Mac support to a lot of their products. I sure hope that the Deployment solution is one of them. Also, I hope that they add the capability of being able to use a Mac to run an instance of the Deployment Solution. If everything goes web-based like most of the products seem to be headed in that direction, it would work on a Mac too. Hopefully it happens. If you know of any other Altiris products that have Mac support, please add comments about it. Thanks.

Should you upgrade to Altiris Client Management Suite 7.0?
In short, for me the answer is not yet. We are currently using Deployment Solution 6.9. I had heard that the Deployment Solution would be integrated with the Notification Server in version 7.0 After speaking with technical support, they told me that they have not been integrated yet, but they didn’t know when that might happen (probably this year – summer/fall 2009).
All of the products in the Altiris Total Management Suite (excluding Deployment Solution - right now) installs to the Symantec Management Platform, which part of it used to be called the Notification Server. The Symantec Management Platform now includes the Symantec Management Console, Database, Notification Server and Client Management Suite management components.
Based on some advice from Altiris, I would wait to upgrade my DS 6.9 when DS 7.1 is released to then have it integrated with NS. Your situation may be entirely...

In my search to improve my arsenal of Altiris products, I wanted to know when some of the new 7.0 products were being released. First, I download the installer for the Altiris Client Management Suite. I looked at the requirements page and saw the requirements are “Windows 2003 Server or better”. So, I prepared a Windows Server 2008 (64 bit and 32 bit) VM to test it on. It didn't install on either. After trying it and speaking with technical support, I found out that The Altiris Client Management Suite, as of right now, works only a Windows 2003 Server 32-bit. They said that you should be able to install it on Windows Server 2008 in the near future (probably this summer - time will tell).

Once you run the installer,  it will install the Symantec Installation Manager....
