Issue/Introduction

Some agents show as not being connected. Agents are not getting their client policies when requested. Error is shown in log. When the queue is checked at C:\ProgramData\Symantec\SMP\EventQueue\EvtQueue, there are not many files therein.

Cause

This can be caused if the Evtqueue is manually deleted and many files are currently processing. The database will have data on those files and will have an open thread for them, but they no longer exist, tying up that thread.

Resolution

To resolve the issue, run the following SQL in SQL Enterprise Management Studio. NOTE: It is always a good idea to back up the database before running transactions against the database!

truncate table eventqueue
truncate table eventqueueentry
truncate table eventqueueentrymetadata

When complete, restart the Altiris Service.
