Issue/Introduction

After upgrading from 7.6 to HF1 - unable to assign Software Delivery task to Predefined computers.
Task was working before in 7.5 and in 7.6 GA versions.

  Receiving error "No Licensed computers or targets with licensed computers were assigned."

Cause

License check method was rewritten in HF1 to improve performance

Resolution

PointFix attached for 7.6 HF1 build.
Fixed in 7.6 HF2 version.

HOW TO INSTALL THIS POINTFIX

  1. Extract files from the archive to the NS hard drive. Make sure that point fix is not extracted to Altiris install directory (or any subfolder to it). Run PFInstaller.exe as administrator.

  2. Execute PFInstaller.exe with administrative privileges (right-click > Run as administrator). Select "Install Files".

  3. Accept UAC (User Account Control) prompt, select Install Files. Old binaries will be automatically backed up to the Backup folder at the same location where PFInstaller is and replaced with the new ones. Log-file log.txt will be created at the same location where PFInstaller is.

  4. Close the PFInstaller window.

 

HOW TO UNINSTALL POINTFIX

  1. Make sure that Backup subfolder is located in PFInstaller directory.

  2. Execute PFInstaller.exe with administrative privileges (right-click > Run as administrator). Old binaries will be repaired from Backup folder located at the same location where PFinstaller is. NS services should be started automatically.

  3. Accept UAC (User Account Control) prompt, select “Uninstall Files”.

  4. Close the PFInstaller window.
