Question
What precautions should be taken before changing the IP address of Altiris Notification Server 6.0?

Answer

  1. Make sure that Domain Name System (DNS) resolution is in place in order to resolve the host name of Altiris Notification Server.
  2. Make sure that the Alternate URL for accessing NS’s option on the NS Console under Configuration tab\Altiris Agent\Altiris Agent Configuration\<Policy Name> \Advanced Settings does not contain an IP address.
  3. If Altiris Deployment Server is installed on the same NS computer, ensure that the AClients are aware of the new IP address.
