Management Platform (Formerly known as Notification Server)

Cause

Endpoints are using speed tests to dermine task server connectivity and availability.

 

Environment

ITMS 8.0, 8.1

Resolution

Use the NoSpeedTests registry setting for each server entry on endpoints. 

A command line run script task can be used to modify/create the value. 

Example:

reg add HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\Communications\Servers\http:ss-w2k8-01.epm.local:80 /t REG_DWORD /v NoSpeedTests /d 1 /f

reg add HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\Communications\Servers\http:ss-w2k12r2-01.epm.local:80 /t REG_DWORD /v NoSpeedTests /d 1 /f

This step will need to be done for each server entry at the registry location.
