Altiris Agent Disconnecting Issue

Client Management Suite IT Management Suite


We are starting to see issues with random clients not being able to execute any jobs/tasks. The job from the console stays stuck on a “Client waiting response” state. Resetting the agent or restarting the Symantec management windows service fixes this issue.

Below are errors from the agent log for one of the problem agents.
