The Customer has noticed many "Unable to add socket watcher errors: Socket is closed" in multiple remote task server logs.
Error processing incoming tickle connection. Unable to add socket watcher: Socket closed.
[Altiris.DotNetLib.Sockets.SocketClosedException @ Altiris.DotNetLib]
ITMS 8.1 RU6 and later
Known issue. Our Dev team fixed some areas to address this problem:
* trying to decrypt only 471 bytes in case of larger size, because of sent tickle packet(s) after registration data
* more logging regarding the tickle connection establishment
* IP address check "removed"
* lowered logging level for some errors, caused by current implementation of client registration within TS - actually no impact on client registration]
This issue has been reported to the Symantec Development team. A fix is currently targeted for the ITMS 8.5 RU1 release.
Some of the changes done for this issue are:
a) the messages "Unable to identify endpoint" must be as trace message
b) the message "Not registered endpoint is..." should not be at all - removed IP address check
c) the message "Socket is closed" must be as trace message
