When you install Deployment Solution on a network where other software is already running that uses PXE, you can get in serious trouble.

I found a document that explains what to do when you want to install Deployment Solution on a network that is already running Ardence.

Read it, and get started.

How much time and how many touchpoints are needed to remediate a client with security updates? Did you know Altiris Out-of-band management has a network filtering option which used the System Defense capabilities built into Intel vPro? Essentially - you can isolate a computer at the client's network interface. Even better, you can keep certain ports\communication open to ONLY the designated Altiris Notification Server - thus allowing delivery of critical software updates!!

What traditionally might involve network teams (to place a system onto a remediation network), client support teams (to deploy the software), and support operation teams (to handle the helpdesk calls) - could automated and resolved much quicker.

We'll be stepping through this at ManageFusion 08 in The Hague (Oct 7-9) and Orlando (Oct 14-16). The hands-on lab is "AP LO2 - Intel: Eliminate Network Attacks During Remote Software Deployment" - two sessions of the same lab scheduled!

If you...

RegSpy is a third party tool which is very helpful at times when most of the registry capturing tools like ComCapture and others, fail. I have seen this tool get registry when ComCapture fails to retrieve registry.

You can download RegSpy from site:

Here is how it works:

To get the registries, you need to open a command prompt, drag drop regspy.exe to command window and give .dll/ or .ocx file as the command line argument. It then loads the .dll or .ocx and looks for DllRegisterServer to call. It then redirects the HKCR and HKLM registry entries to HKCU\Software\Substitute\Registry\(filename)\HKCR and HKCU\Software\Substitute\Registry\(filename)\HKLM

In my recent research with Barcode Solution, I came across the following Remote Control Software for Barcode Devices. This software was really handy in all aspects; I used it with the MC9090-G, MC70, and MC50 devices.

They also have different levels for Enterprise devices as well as a cheaper consumer product. You can also download the product and test it for 7 days. If you email and request a longer trial period they will send you a 30 day product key.

Enterprise Products:

  • MobiControl V5
  • Pocket Controller Enterprise V5.06

Consumer Products:

  • Pocket Controller Pro V6

You probably have 20-30 different programs installed on your PC. Do you know if all of them are up to date? Are you running the latest version of Java or Flash? This free tool gives you an automated way to scan and report for over 7000 applications.

A security company called Secunia has a great little utility called Personal Software Inspector. It is a free tool with the sole purpose of helping you secure your computer from software vulnerabilities. It can be found here.

They maintain a db of all the known vulnerabilities for thousands of applications and compare what is installed on your PC to that list. If it detects an installed program that is either out of date, end of life, or vulnerable it will alert you. Not only does it alert you but it also...

How are other organizations using and benefitting from Intel vPro?

If you're unsure how companies are using Intel vPro or need a little more reference and support to convince internal teams, take a look at the following.

A series of return-on-investment (ROI) and case studies are being posted at The latest one posted (Cleveland Clinic) is an Altiris environment with targeted savings in energy ($442k over 4 years) and man-hours (29k hours also over 4 years).

The other reports listed refer to non-Altiris environments, yet point to similar savings and benefits.

More ROI analysis and case studies are coming.

Do you have a story to tell?

Please comment here, send me a message, post a note on Intel vPro Expert Center... let us know!

If you ever need to script NTFS permission changes, SetACL is a powerful alternative to CACLS. Here is a command line that will use SetACL to grant full control to the Administrators and System accounts on folder and all subfolders:

SetACL.exe -on "C:\Program Files" -ot file -actn ace -ace "n:administrators;p:full" -ace "n:system;p:full" -actn clear -clr "dacl,sacl" -actn rstchldrn -rst "dacl,sacl"

The DSWeb Console and NS Console require .Net Framework 1.1 to be registered with IIS.

A quick way to fix this (or script this for multiple installs) is to run the following command:

%SystemRoot%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_regiis.exe -i -enable

To silently install .Net Framework 2.0 with SP1, follow these two steps.

  1. Download NetFx20SP1_x86.exe from Microsoft
  2. Distribute NetFx20SP1_x86.exe via Deployment Server or Software Delivery Solution with the command-line parameters: /q /norestart

If the silent install finishes with return code 3010, that means that a reboot is required.
