Question
 

How can I redirect a Unix, Linux or Macintosh client to a different Notification Server without reinstalling the Agent on the client?

Answer
 

On the UNIX client:

Modify the /opt/altiris/notification/nsagent/etc/client.conf "server-1 value to point to the desired Notification Server.
Then run the /opt/altiris/notification/nsagent/bin/rcscript restart command.

On a Macintosh client:

Modify the /Applications/Utilities/Altiris/NSAgent/.etc/client.conf "server-1 value to point to the desired Notification Server.
Then run the /Applications/Utilities/Altiris/NSAgent/.bin/rcscript restart command.

All communications should now go to the desired Notification Server.
