The Notification Server has a critical operating system or Hardware level failure. The Notification Server application is installed on a new/rebuilt computer and is connected to the original remote SQL database or restored local version.
What happens with NS security? The original SID (security identifiers) of the previous NT logon accounts may be different on the new computer.
The database configuration process will attempt to restore the roles:
If there are ACEs (access control entities) referencing SIDs other than roles, they will remain unchanged. If the SIDs can be resolved to a valid group they are used if they cannot be resolved they will be ignored.When an Altiris solution is installed, the installation consists of two parts:
Note: When solutions are installed and then configured, any existing solution specific data in the database will be overwritten.
When Notification Server is installed as a Disaster Recovery process, and when an existing database is required to be used, we recommend using the following recovery process:
IMPORTANT: The new Notification Server and installed solutions need to be taken to the same "product and version state" as was the old Notification Server
Note: The above steps will preserve all custom items created on the original Notification Server and stored in the original database (and CoreSettings.config file).
