Over the past several (agonizing) weeks (not because I was working with Altiris but because this problem is bigger than life itself, it seemed like, but I digress) I have been working with Altiris support on a number of issues that has arisen within our infrastructure surrounding the duplication of data for various resources.
This book is my (feeble) attempt as describing these scenarios and how they may be resolved.
Stay tuned for subsequent postings with downloads on how to help resolve and repair each of the items discussed in the article.
As always, let me know what you think and if you have run across any of these things in your environment. Drop a comment, and as always, if you have nothing nice to say, then Flame On!
