I am planning to do a DNS record for a new NS that will have some features for some general customers. I want to be able to type, for example, Altiris on the browser, then that phrase will be associated to the NS box IP address, which should have the NS console as the default page. So how do I make the Altiris Console the default page in IIS?
Would like to change the default page for NS to point for towards the console 6.5 rather than the default web page.
The following steps should work for both Altiris Consoles, Altiris Console 6.0 and 6.5. Make sure that you use the right page paths.
Create a file ( for example consoleRedirect.asp with Notepad) then save it under C:\Inetpub\wwwroot. This file should contain the following:
<meta HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" Content="text/html; charset=Windows-1252">
<title ID=titletext>Redirecting to Altiris Notification Server Console</title>
<% response.redirect("http://localhost/altiris/ns") %>
If you want to add also the Servername into the file, just add another lines like this:
Note: If you want to redirect the default page to use the Altiris Console 6.5, use the same steps but you will need to modify/add the right path in the consoleRedirect.asp file. For example:
