Before the Altiris Console is opened, an authentication window may appear that requires credentials to connect to the Notification Server computer.  Enter a user name (you may need to use domain or computer\username format) and password that has the permissions to access the Notification Server features you want to use and click OK.  The Altiris Console will open.
