There are a number of scenarios where access for capturing an image on a site server may be restricted due to rights problems. There are even some rights issues that may cause the DSPS site components to not install correctly (known issue on Windows 7 site servers for instance, in the GA release).
This article discusses how to "force" these issues to the sidelines and allow capturing images via anonymous access. These will work on any supported DSPS site server.
NIOTE: To make these changes constitutes a relatively significantly security risk because we're opening anonymous access to the altris folder and in IIS. Therefore, it is not recommended or supported by Symantec.
The following steps assume you have a fully functioning Package Server already configured.
If you run the following (on the site server in a browser window), you'll find out if security is now passing through correctly (you should NOT be prompted for credentials):
Browsing to the Package Delivery folder under the Altiris Agent will show a new folder with the name of the GUID in this request if this works (you can try over and over by changing the last digits of the GUID). If security is not open yet, you'll get an "Invalid XML" response in the browser window and a slew of instructions on how to fix it. That message is, again, false. If it works, you'll get about 1-3 lines of valid XML and you'll see the new folder.
Finally, try to capture an image. It should now work. Again, this is NOT a supported scenario!
