Cause

PluggableProtocols.config is not configured properly or PPAInit.xml is corrupted.

Environment

8.x

Resolution

On Notification Server, open "CMD" as administrator and go to the path:

  • C:\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\Bin

Then execute the following command:

  • AeXConfig.exe /configure "C:\Program Files\Altiris\PluggableProtocols\Config\PluggableProtocols.config"

So it should be C:\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\Bin>AeXConfig.exe /configure "C:\Program Files\Altiris\PluggableProtocols\Config\PluggableProtocols.config"
