KNOWN ISSUE: Agent status not updating after using the /server switch
Last Updated March 06, 2009
Agent status not updating after using the /server switch.
Steps to reproduce
1. From command line, open the Altiris Agent. 2. Select the "task status" tab. 3. Open a cmd shell. 4. Navigate to where AexAgentUtil.exe (c:\program files\altiris\altiris agent). 5. Run the command with switch "Server" (i.e. "AexAgentUtil.exe /Server:Other-NS"). On the "task status" page you will notice the "Task Server" field does not update in a timely fashion.
Expected Behavior: When the NS/task server is changed, the "task status" should display the correct server.
The events that are triggered to switch Notification Servers do not cause the Task Agent to re-download the list of Task Servers.
Workaround: Use the Reset agent button in the Task Server Agent UI to register with the Task Server and then shutdown and restart the agent.
Any Windows OS with the Notification Server 7.0 Agent installed.
