Issue/Introduction

When the customer attempts to move more than 11 objects in computers to an Organizational Unit, he gets the following error in the UI that opens:
"Symantec Management Server Error An error has occurred that prevents the Symantec Management Console displaying correctly..." 

Steps to duplicate:
1. Open Manage>Computers
2. Select more than 11 computers
3. Right-click>Add to Organization Group
4. Another UI window opens but it display the generic SMP error 

The customer also mentioned that were other 2 areas that seems to be affected by this:

1. When he goes Open Manage>Computers, Select more than 11 computers, Right-click>Schedule Task, the selected computers don't appear under Selected Devices section. 

Another thing noticed by the customer is that when in computer view and "right-click>CMDB functions>Bulk edit" you get the same SQL error.

Cause

Known issue.

‚ÄčITMS 7.6 HF6 and possible prior 7.6 ones

Resolution

This issue has been reported to the Symantec Development team. A fix for this issue has been added to ITMS 7.6 HF7 and later releases.

The following workarounds were provided in the meantime:

In the SMP Console, Go to Manage>Organizational Views and Groups>Default>All resources>Asset>Network Resource.
You should be able to see your computers and assign them to the Organizational Unit that you want.

As well for assigning a Scheduled Task to more than 10 machines, if you do it from the same way as above (Go to Manage>Organizational Views and Groups>),
you should be able to do it as well.
