Question from a real user: "I thought installing a Service Pack would be easy. But after installing Service Pack 1, Local Security Solution is not working correctly and I have some weird errors in my Notification Server logs. What gives?"

It can really be tough when you want to get your Patch Management system upgraded to the latest version, Patch 6.2. Especially if, throughout the history of your Altiris database, you have moved it, restored it, etc. without using the Altiris AppID account in those procedures.

Make sure that you remember log in as the Altiris APP ID to do any type of database maintenance, when installing or upgrading Patch or other solutions. This will make the upgrades to those solutions much easier.

For specific details on one particular issue, see

Happy Patching!
