5.2. Package Refresh Resetting Security Credentials on DX Repository Package Destination Folders

Problem:  DX Repository is not accessible by DX Deploy Jobs because the NTFS security permissions on the DX Repository package on the site servers are regularly reset to no access, making them inaccessible.

Cause: Whenever a package refresh occurs on a Symantec Site Server, all folders in the file system that are acting as Package Destination locations have their NTFS security permissions reset to no access. These permissions do not affect the access of the packages through the package server, but only through third-party or manual methods, as in the way DX accesses the drivers during the deployment job.

Environment: 
Symantec Management Platform 7.1 SP1, SP2 

Affected Versions:
2.x, 3.x 

Solution:

Turn off DACL Management on each package server.
1) Open the registry editor on your package server
2) Open registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\Altiris Agent\Package Server
3) Create a new DWORD value named "EnableDACLManagement" with a value of "0"
4) Restart the package Server

This will affect the DACL Management for all packages on the site server, but does not alter the existing security permissions.
