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.

Trying to restore an image to Lenovo M57, the NIC driver related to Intel 82566DM-2 has been added into the WinPE, Ghost finished restoring the image, and when DA starts processing the NIC driver, it return back asking for:
prounstl.exe file from c:\swtools\drivers\ethernet\a2etn00us17\pro1000\

DeployAnywhere only works with drivers that can be installed from their associated INF file, and on the same time it seems that there is another driver availabe under the OS on that image.

As a workaround for that specific NIC, try to delete the oem.inf file related to the NIC under "\Windows\inf\" from the image

I have had issues with the HP Elitebook 8530P machines and I wanted to share the resolution I found:

To resolve this issue, you will need to use Windows PE as the PreOS, add the latest driver for the Intel card and add some disk access command line switches.

1. Go to Intel's website and download the Windows Vista driver for the Intel 82567LM-3 network card:

2. Extract that driver via these instructions:

Key benefits of this integrated product are:

·         Extending & enhancing the functionality of your Altiris deployment by integrating & harnessing the network knowledge provided by the Redcell management software suite.
·         Gaining total visibility to your datacenter environment – view network device details (cards, ports, interfaces) & their associations to your server infrastructure (connectivity) collected by Redcell, all from within the Altiris console.
·         Gaining the ability to perform important network device configuration operations directly from within Altiris, such as file backups & restorations, with full audit control.
·         Knowing the health of the datacenter’s network infrastructure & how it...

Due to limited memory, installing a Ghost client on these devices will fail. 1-click virtual partition boot media tends to fail, as well. Here is a method to backup and restore to an iGel Thin Client:

1. Create a Standard Ghost Boot Package using PC-DOS on a USB flash drive.

2. Boot to that device; the boot order will need to be changed to allow booting to that device.

3. Choose Local > Disk > To Image to backup, or choose Local > Disk > From Image to restore.

Note: The USB flash drive used will need to be large enough to accomodate the Ghost boot package and the image.

In this post I will provide links to KB articles that cover some issues that were encountered and solutions that have resolved them. The intention here is to decrease the pain if you are facing such issues in your environment. I hope it will be informative for you.

What Hardware Information is reported by Hardware Inventory?

See: https://kb.altiris.com Article 25924

Inventory Solution report 'Count of Computers with/without Antivirus Software' does not recognize Mcafee VirusScan Enterprise or Kaspersky Antivirus

Ghost Console Clients will not be able to connect to the Ghost Console if the PIX firewall is blocking access to the multicast group ID address of 229.55.150.208.

Configuring the PIX firewall to allow the clients to multicast to the multicast group address 229.55.150.208, and configuring the firewall to allow the Ghost Console to send unicast UDP traffic to the clients will resolve this.

Alternatively, using the Ghostcast method with either the switch -JADDR=<serveripaddress>, or by entering the server's IP address after entering the session name will work. This bypasses the need for a multicast communication for client identification.

Disc Space Reporter is a simple and effective program which gives you a clear insight where you stuffed your hard drives with data you don't even remember anymore.

You can quickly scan your drives and create a list of folders based upon the space they have taken up. I do hope someone here finds it useful.

You can find this freeware available here: http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Info/Di...
