Symantec Management Agent service crashes upon starting or just before attempting to download a package.
Exception Code: C0000008 (Invalid socket)
SMB v1 is disabled, leaving only SMB v2.
NS name / URL has invalid charecters
- If SMB v1 is disabled, it must be enabled again to ensure successfull connection test using SMB protocot.
As a workaround, delete all registry keys starting with "smb://" under "HKLM\Software\Altiris\Communications\Servers"
- If SMA has been installed using a script, ensure that all passed parameters are valid, and NS name / URL is valid.
Symantec is aware of this issue. Fix target release 8.1 RU6
