Question
How can I stop computers that have not checked in for a long time from being automatically retired?

Answer

In the Altiris Console, click Configuration tab > Configuration > Server Settings > Notification Server Settings > Purging Maintenance.  In the left pane, uncheck the "Purge managed computers reporting to this NS, which not have not reported for [number][time period], or leave it checked, change the frequency, and make sure “Retire the Computers….” option is selected if you want to retire them or the “Delete the computers… “ option is selected if you want them removed from the database.
