This issue can be caused if no Task Servers are configured for the Notification Server.
Verify that a Task Server is available on the Notification Server. For example, open the Task Server portal page in the Altiris 6.5 Console by clicking on Manage > Jobs from the menu bar. This portal page will contain a list of Task Servers that are available on the Notification Server and how many clients have registered with each one. Ensure the list is not blank, as the Notification Server needs at least one available Task Server to function properly. Additional Task Servers can be deployed through the Altiris 6.5 Console by clicking Manage > Jobs and then navigating through the tree to Task Management > Task Server Configuration > Task Server Rollout. For more information on deploying Task Servers, see the Task Server help guide on our Web site at http://www.altiris.com/Support/Documentation.aspx.
