Altiris Dagent not executing any jobs when service log on as local ‘SYSTEM’ but it executing when service configured with domain account

I need a solution

Hi All,

I have a very wired issue with one of my windows 2008 r2 server ( which was working previously ) , i have configured Altiris Dagent service to log on as ‘LOCAL SYSTEM’ then none of the job is executing ,job just running forever without any sucess or failure ,when i use my domain account which have admin privilege on the system job executing as normal.I have granted permission to LOCAL SYSTEM to ‘log on as a service’ in security policy and also SYSTEM is not part of the ‘deny log on as service’ .Any idea what might be causing this issue .

Thanks In advance.

DeployAnywhere confused by a driver whose “Provider” contains a forward-slash

I need a solution

We were automatically provisioning a system using Symantec ITMS Deployment Solution. The DriverManager64.exe (part of DeployAnywhere) task failed on the client system with the following error:

SMPPackage.cpp@772: Error in downloading file from HTTP.source :http://itms/Altiris/PackageShare/pkggroup_guid/DriversDB/BayHubTech/o2flash.exe and dest :C:DS_SOISymantecDeploymentDriversDBBayHubTecho2flash.exe. The COM error = HTTP error occurred
[… many similar lines …]

On the ITMS server, I explored C:Program FilesAltirisDeploymentDriversDB and found that the BayHubTech subdirectory was a unique case:

DriversDBAdaptec.cda1000.4.20.38
DriversDBAdaptec.cda1000.4.20.38drivers.manifest.txt
DriversDBAdaptec.cda1000.4.20.38CDA1000.inf
[… other files …]

*versus*

DriversDBBayHubTech
DriversDBBayHubTechO2Micro.O2FJ2RDR.2.2.2.1076
DriversDBBayHubTechO2Micro.O2FJ2RDR.2.2.2.1076drivers.manifest.txt
DriversDBBayHubTechO2Micro.O2FJ2RDR.2.2.2.1076o2fj2x64.inf
[… other files …]

Notice how the BayHubTech subdirectory contains a further directory structure (“O2Micro”). None of the other drivers in this folder contained additional “layers” of directories — only BayHubTech. I determined that this driver is Dell’s O2 Micro OZ777xxx/OZ621XX memory card reader Driver, and upon further inspection I saw that the INF file contains (after variable substitution) the following line:

Provider = “BayHubTech/O2Micro”

I suspect that the forward-slash in this directive is being incorrectly interpreted in two different ways: it causes the ITMS DeployAnywhere DriversDB to create an extra layer of subdirectories, and it causes the DeployAnywhere client to stop parsing the name after “BayHubTech.” Furthermore, it is impossible to delete the impacted driver from the ITMS Driver Management interface; instead, the following lines appear on the server-side logs:

Altiris.Deployment.Web.DeployAnyWhereDriverDB: ArgumentsList:/del=”BayHubTech/O2Micro.O2FJ2RDR.2.2.2.1060″ /ddb=”D:AltirisDeploymentDriversDB”
Altiris.Deployment.Web.DeployAnyWhereDriverDB: Delete Drivername passed:BayHubTech/O2Micro.O2FJ2RDR.2.2.2.1060
Altiris.Deployment.Web.DeployAnyWhereDriverDB: Delete Driver Database return code is :11
Altiris.Deployment.Web.DeployAnyWhereDriverDB: Incorrect parameter(s) provided.

Can this behavior be fixed? I have needed to resort to recreating drivers.manifest.txt (as suggested in this forum discussion) in order to clear the bad driver.

Looking to block loginw.exe (part of Altiris Deployment Suite) found as part of some malicious code found on on of our computers

I need a solution

We found an application which was somewhat difficult to decode/reverse engineer but we were able to reverse engineer some comments. 
 

  *.pwl   help             loginw version 2.2.2

Copyright © 2005-2007 Altiris, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

Usage: loginw has 4 modes: Authenticate mode, Ping mode, IP mode, Generate mode

Authenticate mode (authenticate network connection):

        loginw [-f “pwlFile[;…]”] -c “computer[;…]” -d “domain” [-t seconds] [-e [all]] [-u] [-r] [-v]

-f pwlFile[;pwlFile2;…] = filename(s) of password file(s)

-c computer[:pwlFile][;computer2[:pwlFile2];…] = computer(s) (or ip address) to connect to

-d domain = name of domain to connect to

-t seconds = number of seconds to try to authenticate (%d sec)

-e [all | any] = all: process all then return (default) | any: return immediately if any fails

-u = prompt for username and password on connect failure

-r = reconnect existing connections

returns 0 on success

returns windows system error code on failure

Ping mode (test for valid IP address):

        loginw -p [-192.168;172 | +172;10.12.131.17] [-w seconds] [-e any] [-a “file”] [-i] [-v]

-p = test local IP address

-nnn;nnn… = test with exclude list (eg. -169;192.168)

+nnn;nnn… = test with include list (eg. +192.168;169;172.16.100.100)

-w seconds = number of seconds to try to test (%d sec)

-e [all | any] = all: process all then return | any: return immediately if any fails (default)

-a [file] = write adapter list to file; if file is empty write to screen

-i = return ip (32 bit signed value) on success, 0 on failure

returns 0 on success

returns 1 if no ip address could be bound to an existing adapter

returns 2 if no adapters were found

IP mode (return IP address):

        loginw -i [-w seconds] [-a “file”]

-i = return IP address

-w seconds = number of seconds to try to get address (%d sec)

-a [file] = write adapter list to file; if file is empty write to screen

returns the ip address (32 bit signed value) on success

returns 1 if no ip address could be bound to an existing adapter

returns 2 if no adapters were found

Generate password file mode:

        loginw -g “username:password” [-f “pwlFile”]

-g username:password = username and password

-f pwlFile = file to generate; if missing use username as filename

returns 0 on success

returns 1 on invalid or missing username

returns 2 on error

All modes:

-v = verbose mode (show message boxes on failure)

This code goes along with the .bat file that was trying to use these commands to push a .pwl file (found on the same machine) to a server on our network. I tried to be a bit cryptic on my last post saying “what would we need to unblock on a firewall to make loginw.exe work” but it seems that that .exe uses basic ports that wouldn’t be possible to block on most networks without disrupting all other services. Is there a way to block this that any of you may know of?

SQL Report to get computers migrated from W7 to W10

I need a solution

Hello,

I would like to know if someone has any idea about how to detect or get the computers that has been migrated from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I perfectly know how to get the windows 10 machines but is so tedious to get which ones where upgraded from Windows 7 or which ones were directly imaged with Windows 10. Maybe something is saved in any register key or Altiris saves any information about different OS that have been installed in the PCs…

Im interesting on this because in our company we are fully involved on Windows 7 exit and I would like to may follow the progress of upgrades. I assume that the local IT per countries are keepnig the name of computers that they are migrating.

Thanks a lot for your valuable help, and thanks for this forum, one of the best things that Altiris has.

Altiris Shared Schedules

I do not need a solution (just sharing information)

Today on Altiris facebook group one guy reported a mistake on shared schedules configurations.

If administrators configure a simple schedule (like daily or weekly) no problems, the schedule is created into windows task scheduler regularly.

But if an administrator create a montly schedule, like “every last day of month” there’s a mistake on task scheduler configuration, according to this table:

this can be create troubles during all types of activities, like patching, software deployment and so on. Manually changing the schedule into windows task schedule did not solve the problem as altiris automatically push back the wrong configuration.

Here an example from Altiris prospective:

Altiris pow

And this is the Windows Task Scheduler:

Task Scheduler POW

This is with last version of Altiis 8.5RU2, but was reported also in RU1. In Altiris 8.0 was working fine, I don’t have an 8.1 or 8.5ga for other tests. Seem to be a bug of the task scheduler creator.

Site Server Service and Update individual resource

I need a solution

Is there a way to update a resource membership for an individual resource? Normally I would run a Delta update schedule through the console, but was wondering if I could update a resource membership for one computer? Perferably through a web service. If not, is the only way to run the Delta udpate schedule is from this web service: http://nsserver/Altiris/ASDK.NS/ItemManagementServ…?

Also, is there a web service where I can tell if a site server has the package service installed? In the console i would go to Settings > Notification Server > Site Server Settings > Site Server > “name of site server”. Then I can see all the services installed.

Thanks.

Reset Software Update Plug-in Policy

I need a solution

Good evening,

I have encountered an issue on a server which is running on Windows 2008 R2 OS with Altiris Management Agent 8.1. The issue i have is the fact that it failed to install a bunch of updates and it have reached the maximum default number of “reinstallation attempts after task failure” of 3. 

I’ve searched high and low and tried to locate the Altiris registry key on the server which contains this fact and try to delete, but with no luck.

Could you kindly let me know where is this key located so i can manually purge it and have the server retry the failed updates? 

Thank you for your time.
