I started to hunt as many have before for a custom inventory for Altiris 7.1 that would get the Autodesk information like in Altiris 6.5. Every time I thought I had the script working I would find a different product it was not getting the information on correctly. Or in some case it just would not read a registry field like it would all the others. As I started to look I found the reason was not all the registry fields patterns where the same in about 2012 they changed the format of the registry configuration. There are also other products in Autodesk that the path in the registry was different or the field I wanted had a different name from one product to the next. So I started to compile a list of all the software I may need and looked for the registry keys I would need to make a functional custom inventory script for Autodesk. Just so we can all get it out yes I know I could have broken parts of this down into functions and had the script shorter but at the time I was not...

Migration: A migration is when you install the latest version of the IT Management Suite solutions on a new server, and then migrate the data from the earlier ITMS solutions to the latest version of the application.

Upgrade: An upgrade is when you install the latest version of ITMS on the same hardware, server operating system, and database.

You must migrate the Notification Server 6.x or 7.0 data to either Notification Server 7.1 SP2 or Notification Server 7.5. After migrating the data, you must first upgrade to either ITMS 7.1 SP2 MP1.1 or ITMS 7.5 HF6 depending on the path you choose and then upgrade to ITMS 7.5 SP1.

The following diagram gives an overview of the migration and upgrade process:

Trying to be nice here. SIM is frustrating. No product is more certain to bring an SMP server's resources to its knees.

So, word to the wise. ALWAYS close SIM when you've finished using it.

I.E.11 isn't officially supported in ITMS 7.5 release, therefore there could appear issue due incompatibility, while managing SMP 7.5 Console.
Many people have Windows 8/8.1 OS and there is I.E. 11 which (as far as I know) cannot be downgraded to lower version of I.E.

Temporary solution while next release of ITMS 7.5 where I.E. 11 will be supported:
1. Install "Chrome" browser on your WIndows 8/8.1 OS http://www.google.com/chrome/‎
2. Install "I.E. tab" for Chrome http://www.ietab.net/
3. Open "Chrome" browser ⇒ click on "I.E. tab"⇒ specify URL of your SMP Server

I have just checked my 7.5 HF4 system and have found that all six "Site Management > Settings > Monitor Service > Advanced > Windows Remote Monitoring Server <architecture> <action>" policies are enabled!

This obviously does not make sense, as the Uninstall policies should only be used either when the Install & Upgrade policies are disabled, or have had their targets changed so that they do not cover the servers that you want to target the uninstall process against.

Hello all,

I have attached three English EULA's pertaining to Altiris Product's as it appears that the EULA's are not easily found.

 

The EULA associated with the SIM install itself.

The EULA for ITMS 7.5

The EULA for the 9 hotfixes that are available after installing ITMS 7.5

 

I hope that this blog is continuously updated by the community adding either new English EULA's or the existing EULA's in non-English languages.
