Our company is using ghost 8.2 to image new computers for deployment by local drive to local drive. Is there a way to use ghost 8.2 to image the computer over network? eg without removing the hard drive from the new computer. The objective is to run ghost 8.2 from our office in NA to re image a computer in our network environment over in asia.
Can anyone help me to configure the alert for server restarted or server shutdown using Altiris Monitering solution.
I am missing events data class for AeX Client Logon for a computer, the agent was pushed to it almost 2 weeks ago. Inventory for hardware and software data are there.
Under events though Software Management and Software Update folders are also missing.
i need this package for this tutorial, WinPe1.txt and WinPe2.txt, and Ghost64.exe (188.8.131.5270) :
We are seeing a number of Warnings in the SMP log related to Cache Size. Error:
Description: Core setting Client Policy Cache Size is too small to satisfy incoming requests. Current value: 20000
This Warning seems to be related to the recent upgrade to 7.5 SP1 HF3 from 7.5 HF6.
What would be a value I should consider for this setting? We are a 2,400 node site with 1 NS and 1 Site Server/Task.
I use Symantec™ Management Console Altiris Notification Server™ Version 7.5 on windows server 2008
I need to build agent altiris 7.5 for MAC 10.8 and need to manually install on machine.
Please help to advise me ?
1. How to buil altiris agent for MAC ?
2. How to install agent on MAC ?
I am critically low on drive space on my site server and have deleted packages in the SMP but the packages are still on the site servers. Does anybody know why this would be and if there is a way to remove them?
Hi all, there isa strange issue, all my altiris clients cannot get any policy or jobs, there is nothing showed in package delivery window. those clients showed they have connected and registered to NS serve already I can see thoese clients in NS Console also. Does anyone have met this issue before?
Need help to get a report in Altiris 7.1 to show the fields, Machine Name, User Name, OS type, Software Name, Date Installed where Software is like
"Check Point" and list the count of all entries for it. I started on the query below but it is incomplete . I appreciate your help and time on this.
SELECT vc.Guid,vc.Name, arp.DisplayName,arp.DisplayVersion
FROM vComputer vc
JOIN Inv_AddRemoveProgram arp ON arp._ResourceGuid=vc.Guid
WHERE DisplayName LIKE ' Check Point%' AND arp.InstallFlag=1
We are trying to get the name of a client computer as task input.
Both of these tasks are assigned to a server job.
Our first task is simply an echo. The save script output box has been checked.
This is the second task.
For the Task Input window, the settings are:
For var1: [Use output from a previous task]
[First Task - Script]
Basically, we want the first task to return the computer name, then have the second task take the computer name as a token.
However, this does not seem to be working. We're not getting the expected output of the computer name. Could someone clarify how this process works and what option we should be using if we want to pass a string between tasks? Thank you for your time.
Necesito instalar it analytics en un servidor con windows server 2012, pero en la informacion de Symantec de requerimientos solo especifica hasta las versiones de windows server 2008 r2, mi pregunta es si alguien lo a implementado en windows server 2012 y si es soportado?
Does workflow have a builtin component for specifying a character limit in a multiline text box?
Je viens d'installer les hotfix HF4 sur mon CMS 7.5 SP1.
Maintenant quand je veux éditer un rôle de détection, j'ai une erreur , sans trace dans les logs serveur
Quelqu'un aurait-il une idée de résolution ?
Great article ! It helped me get started with Scripted OS install. I got Win7 installed but the drivers did not install. The drivers get copied to the local c: drive under C:\DriversDB but they don't get installed. I have the following in the answer file.

What am I missing ? Please advise.
Thanks in advance !!
I am new to Ghost Solution Suite and cannot seem to figure out how to do what I used to do with Norton Ghost 14. With Norton Ghost 14, I had my computer set up to automatically do incremental and full backups to a local external drive (USB connected). Each day at the designated time it would automatically run and perform the appropriate backup.
Ghost Solution Suite offers so many features and seems so complex that I cannot figure out what to install and what to run to do the same simple operation. My computer is on a network with other computers and it is crucial that the software do not even attempt to look on the network. It must be totally local to this one machine. The documentation is of no help to me here because for a standalone machine it tells you to boot to DOS and use the DOS version. That all requires rebooting the machine and manual intervention. That is not what I am looking to do at all. I am looking to do simple, daily image backups (partial and full) while the machine is still in windows and it often unattended. I've searched through the documentation but how to do this simple operation and keeping the software away from the local network seems to be eluding me. I wasn't an expert with Ghost 14 and I don't expect to become an expert with GSS. So I am hoping one of you experts out there can tell me how to achive this simple task using the lastest version of GSS.
Any feedback from those running this latest release and hotfix? My production server's only at 7.1 SP2 MP1.1 where upgrading my test SMP 7.1 VM to 7.5 SP1 HF3 went smoothly about a week ago. However, yesterday my vSphere client reported that my VM had high CPU usage (eventengine.exe) and couldn't grab an IP address. Getting into the VM's console, everything was super slow (even logging in) and objects in the Windows GUI weren't updating or working at all with multiple errors and multiple Altiris services not starting. Rebooting didn't help where Windows was pretty much useless and unresponsive.
CPU usage has gone down this morning after a few reboots although most of the Altiris services still have failed to start. Now that the server's more responsive, I'm repairing some programs like VMware Tools, SEP, and even ran "sfc /scannow" which found no problems. I'll have to comb through the Windows event logs for clues on why this all happened although this catastrophic failure doesn't give me a good feeling about upgrading to 7.5 SP1 HF3. Perhaps this was a glitch in our Vcenter environment where I may not have the same problem on my physical SMP box so that's why I'd like your feedback on your experiences with 7.5 SP1 HF3. Thanks in advance!
I have a Scripted Windows 7 OS install job setup and added it to the Initial deployment properties. I also setup few other jobs under this job to join the computer to the domain and then install softwares. Here is the order.
How do I automate the jobs so that when it is done with 1st job (1.ScriptOSWin7), it jumps to 2nd (DomainJoin) and then 3rd and so on....without any user interaction. Please advise.
I need to be able to create a filter to find all machines that have a certain application installed on them. For example, all machines that have Navigo Workstation 2.0. We want to target that computer to run a job that uninstalls and installs a different software solution. I have the job ready to go but how can I find computers with this software installed. It shows up in add/remove programs or I could use the location of the .exe file if needed.
I need to get the count of all Adobe Acrobat versions from Altiris and would be something like noted below to show Software Display Name, Display Version, Manufacturer, Count. I appreciate the help
Adobe Acrobat Professional 8 Adobe Systems, Inc. 4
Adobe Acrobat Professional 9 Adobe Systems, Inc. 11
Adobe Acrobat Standard 7 Adobe Systems, Inc. 9
Adobe Acrobat Standard 8 Adobe Systems, Inc. 18
Adobe Acrobat Standard 9 Adobe Systems, Inc. 37
Adobe Acrobat X Standard Adobe Systems, Inc. 2
I need to know how to configure a push function where its new package of SEP latest virus definition files can be built and push over to the clients in order to update the ceiling file. Then, I would like to know the outcome fail/success status after the deployment via reporting. Please advise if anyone knows where to obtain the proper resources or documents link that provide this solution.
Thanks in advance.
