I am using NetBoot/NetRestore for my image deployment. I use ARD for
most of my remote management (VNC), packages, and simple fixes. I use
SSH for other remote admin stuff like traces, log analysis, and low
level BSD stuff. I use OD/MCX for my bigger policy stuff.
My IT manager is happy with my decisions regarding ARD, NetBoot, etc,
but he wants to use our existing Altiris server for application
deployment and asset management. It has been used in the past for
Windows only services. I don't know anything about Altiris, and wonder
if it will do a comparable job to other vendors such as JAMF's Casper
The good news is that my Desktop Techs are experienced with Altirus
(for Windows). The bad news is that Im not experienced with Altirus.
Our Desktop Techs are new to Mac OS X too.
Is anyone having good luck with Altiris for asset management/inventory
and application/patch deployment?
