Hi All, We are currently in migration phase where we are shifting client's Symantec (DLP, CCS and AV) servers and services from client's previous service provider's DC to our own DC. Can anyone tell me how will I make endpoint systems and servers to communicate with newly created servers ? Regards

Are there any APIs I can add to our software to make it Altiris-compatible? I've never used Altiris, but several of our customers use it, so if there's anything we can add to our software to have Altiris "find" it and be able to deploy new software etc. without actually having to install Altiris on the computers we provide? Or if we need to install Altiris, how to have the local Altiris ...

Good afternoon, colleagues! Faced a problem - there are two NS, both in different network segments, but they are in the same domain. Import rule from Active Directory for them is the same (the same OU), but each of them can manage only those objects that are on its subnet (a separate network segment). Two questions: 1. What happens if you make bulk import on one of them - will the objects ...

Hello all, Could you please let me know if the following is possible, and if so, how can this be accomplished in the easiest manner (I am thinking of either CMDB rules or automation policies):  1.  Import a list of computers into their relevant filters/targets.  2.  Initiate the update.  Thanks in advance, SK.

I need to create a software filter that will look a users AD group and based upon having certain Security Groups it will install software from a quick deploy job.  I am not a DBA so if any answers or examples a minimal explanation of what does what would be great.  Thanks.

I'm trying to create a filter that identifies all of our Laptops. We use Lenovo's so any item in  Inv_AeX_HW_Baseboard Part Numberwill reflect what we are trying to find.

Did Symantec ever get around to giving us an quick identifier on the Manage > Computers page to see whether or not a machine is currently powered on and connected?  I'm in the process of dropping DS 6.9 and migrating everything to our new SMP 8.1 server but I'm having a hard time selling this to our Support staff because they're so used to seeing whether or not a machine is ...

I've looked for Altiris Visio stencils on the web and never came across any, so I put my own together from various sources. This is my first time creating one so hopefully it turned out OK. See the screen shot below for an example diagram I did with the stencil. I created this using Visio 2003, so not sure how/if it will work in other versions. To use, just unzip the stencil and place it ...

If information is sent to a SIEM via file, the event type Scan, SONAR, Risk etc can be identified via the file name (KB HOWTO81168).  If the information is sent via syslog rather than file (KB HOWTO81169), then all the events are sent but without an identifier to identify which event is from which log type.  Consequently it is extremly hard to parse the data when log lines look ...
