Issue/Introduction

After upgrading to 8.6 RU1, we observe an issue with the console: 

Some settings menu make the console freeze

in SMP Logs following error messages are logged:

Failed to perform a collection membership update on the collection 'UNIX/Linux/Mac Computers Requiring Symantec Management Agent Upgrade' (edc60302-f96a-4bbc-9b68-402eaead63d5). An unhandled exception has occurred.

Failed to perform operation: Updating resource targets (view), current="%View item guid%"

Cause

Environmental.

Most likely caused by the large number of resources managed by the Console

Environment

ITMS 8.6 RU1

Resolution

This issue will be addressed under the ITMS 8.6 RU2 release.

A pointfix for 8.6 RU1 is available under KB 221269 “CUMULATIVE POST ITMS 8.6 RU1 POINT FIXES”

 

Meanwhile following workaround can be applied for those that can't apply the mentioned pointfix:

For workaround we would need to change the default filter query to modified one.

In SQL run following query to allow us to Edit it:

update item set Attributes='0' where guid = 'edc60302-f96a-4bbc-9b68-402eaead63d5'

Then in Console go to Manage > Filters > Software Filters > Agent and Plugin-in Filters > and find this 'UNIX/Linux/Mac Computers Requiring Symantec Management Agent Upgrade' Filter. It's now should be Editable.

Select Edit

And in Parameterized Query field, replace the content with the following:

declare @lastVersion nvarchar(20) set @lastVersion = (SELECT MAX (Version) FROM dbo.SmpVersions d, Inv_AeX_AC_Client_Agent a WHERE d.PluginGuid= a.[Agent Class Guid] AND a.ProgId='Altiris.PluginManager')
SELECT DISTINCT v1.Guid FROM vRM_Computer v1
INNER JOIN Inv_AeX_AC_Identification id ON id._ResourceGuid = v1.Guid
INNER JOIN Inv_AeX_AC_Client_Agent t1 ON v1.Guid = t1._ResourceGuid
CROSS APPLY dbo.fnSysMask_GetAllSystemMaskAsTable(id.[OS System Mask]) sm
WHERE v1.IsManaged=1
AND sm.[Platform] & ( 2 + 4 + 32 ) != 0
AND (((LOWER(t1.[Agent Name]) LIKE '%altiris agent%'
OR LOWER(t1.[Agent Name]) LIKE '%altiris express unix ns agent%'
OR t1.[Ident] = 'NSAGENT')
AND (dbo.fnAltiris_Agent_Unix_CompareVersion(t1.[Product Version], @lastVersion ) < 0))
OR (LOWER(t1.[Agent Name]) LIKE '%altiris%mac%inventory%solution%'
AND (dbo.fnAltiris_Agent_Unix_CompareVersion(t1.[Product Version], '6.1') > 0)))

And Save changes.

Then we would recommend to perform IISReset (to remove cached version). And see if that makes any difference.
