Issue/Introduction

After migrating to a new SMP Server, the customer noticed the following error under SMP Console>Settings>All Settings>Notification Server>Certificate Management:

NS root certificate
Certificate details not found

Environment

ITMS 8.6

Cause

Wrong reference for the Agent CA certificate or missing regkey.

Resolution

Check the following:

  1. Check that the following "Thumbprint" regkey exists under [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\eXpress\Notification Server\CA\Agent]
  2. If it exists, check that it has the right thumbprint for the Agent CA certificate. If it has the wrong value, add the right one.
  3. If it doesn't exists, recreate the regkey and add the proper thumbprint reference for your Agent CA certificate. 

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\eXpress\Notification Server\CA\Agent]
    "Thumbprint"="E4C91063C42DBCF615A0EC56B174F1B6C0912AC2"

  4. Restart Altiris Service.

Note:
You can find the required Agent CA certificate information under MMC on your SMP Server.
