KNOWN ISSUE : In NS 7.0, the service will not start. The resolution may have to be repeated from time to time.
The error is Error 1067 : 'Could not start the _Symantec_netBoot_Interface service on local computer ... the process terminated unexpectedly. '
The IP addresses used by the file InitialPXEConfigPath.txt is not updated to reflect the IP of the Deployment server that is part of the PXE Server Configuration. The file could be incorrectly configured or missing. This prevents the SBS Interface service from running properly.
Development is aware of the issue and is working on a solution. As an temporary workaround, you can modify a file on the NS called InitialPXEConfigPath.txt. It is typically located at C:\Program Files\Altiris\Altiris Agent\Agents\Deployment\Task Handler\SBS. It may also be listed with a different drive letter or it could be missing. If the file is missing, you can start with the file attached to this document. You must modify this file to use the IP address of the Deployment Server, and, if you have installed DS on a drive letter other than C:, the path for 'Mtftp_Root_Folder' must be updated as well.
