Management Platform (Formerly known as Notification Server)




We have computers in two different domains that we are attempting to push the Altiris Agent out to. The domain that the NS server is in is a NT domain. The other is an AD domain. No trust exists between the two. We are having problems getting the Altiris Agent installed on numerous clients because of this. Is there a login script that can be used to better push out the Altiris Agent?

The Notification Server Reference guide provides a way of doing this and this one also works very well. Include these lines in a batch file and point the login script or GPO to this batch file on the NS or some other share.

if exist "c:\Program Files\Altiris Agent\AeXNSAgent.exe" goto :end

net use n: "\\NS_ServerName\NSCap\Bin\Win32\X86\NS Client Package"

n:\aexnsc.exe -s -a ns="NS_ServerName" nsweb=http://NS_ServerName/Altiris/ NOTRAYICON NOSTARTMENU /s

net use n: /delete


Here are the command line arguments that can be used for aexnsc.exe.
