After running an install through Apple Remote Desktop (ARD), there is an error in the log on the target computer.
ERROR: No configuration file found. File:.aex-agent-install-config.xml
Search Path: /mpt:/var:/Applications/Utilities/Altiris
No upgrade possible, and Interactive mode disabled.
To configure install interactively, run the aex-configure exe (located in the Agent's bin directory).
Install not complete, Setting return status to 1 (configure failed).
This was on the target, after dragging the package file to a target computer in ARD.
The aex-nsclt package is looking for a config.xml file, and it is not available. The file aex-bootstrap contains all default settings when run with the Notification Server hostname as a command-line parameter. There is no way to do this with the aex-nsclt package, which extracts to AltirisAgent.pkg. The only way to configure the agent settings when using the aex-nsclt package is to include a .aex-agent-install-config.xml or to manually run 'aex-configure -iconfigure' after the installation.
