Issue/Introduction

The customer is trying to re-configure ITMS. Symantec Installation Manager (SIM) is giving warnings while trying to find the proper config file references:

Symantec.Installation.PerformInstall.AddConfigInfoToList: Config file path was set to (C:\PROGRA~1\Altiris\Symantec Installation Manager\CMDBDocumentation\Config\CMDBDocumentation.config) but there was no associated file at that location. Skipping running configuration for this config.

After SIM finishes re-configuring, it actually still sees the installed products as installed but not configured.

Symantec.Installation.PerformInstall.AddConfigInfoToList: Config file path was set to (C:\PROGRA~1\Altiris\Symantec Installation Manager\CMDBDocumentation\Config\CMDBDocumentation.config) but there was no associated file at that location. Skipping running configuration for this config.

Priority: 2, Source: Symantec.Installation.PerformInstall.AddConfigInfoToList
 

Environment

ITMS 8.5, 8.6

Cause

We found that under "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\AIM", "InstallDir" had the wrong path: C:\Program Files\Altiris\Symantec Installation Manager\Symantec Installation Manager\
It should be "C:\Program Files\Altiris\Symantec Installation Manager\"


As well, iIt was referring to the wrong config file location: C:\Program Files\Altiris\Symantec Installation Manager\CMDBDocumentation\Config\CMDBDocumentation.config
It should be C:\Program Files\Altiris\CMDBDocumentation\Config\CMDBDocumentation.config

We found that under "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\AIM", "PlatformInstallDir" had the wrong path: C:\Program Files\Altiris\Symantec Installation Manager\
It should be "C:\Program Files\Altiris\"

Resolution

Remove the incorrect path references under "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\AIM", "InstallDir" and "PlatformInstallDir".

Other regkeys to review for the proper drive/path reference:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\InstallPath
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\AIM\InstallDir
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\AIM\PackageRepositoryPath
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\AIM\PlatformInstallDir
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\AIM\Configuration\NsConfiguration\InstallPath
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\AIM\Configuration\ProductListings\Destination
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\AIM\Licensing\LocalRepository
