I have spent sometime working with the Altiris NS Agent and getting everything to work successfully with Ubuntu. However I have run into a problem… In order to get the Agent to run successfully, I need to modify the rc.d script to get it to work. The problem is that if you look at the rc.d script it states it is properiatry and can’t be modified. So I have some contacts into Altiris to see what we can do, if I can publish how to change it, etc.
Hopefully at Manage Fusion, I can get a chance to talk with developers…. Are you going to Manage Fusion? Let me know and we will try to meet.
While you all wait for further updates, feel free to check out this write up on using Ubuntu and the DS Agent.
