Agent functions as expected prior to and after running Microsoft Sysprep. Image is created with Altiris. Agent and fails to register when deployed to a computer.
In comparing logs from when the agent was working and when it was not, and we found that when it was not working it was attempting to communicate to the Notification Server using HTTP, and when it was working, it was communicating via HTTPS.
We traced the issue in this case to the use of an older agent installation package using an outdated communication profile.
We switched to using the correct Communication Profile.
