You are using the Remote Control notification feature to provide audio notification in the Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 Advanced Client. You enable Play a Sound
notification and then try to select the When session begins and ends
option. After you do this, the When session begins and ends
option automatically changes to Repeated during session
. The Play a Sound
notification remains selected.
This problem occurs because of an issue with machine policy XML data. In the CCM_RemoteToolsConfig
class, the AudibleSignal
parameter is defined as boolean. A boolean parameter can accept only a value of 0 or 1. In the registry, audible notification is defined by a value in the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\Client\Client Components\Remote Control\Audible Signal
Possible values are as follows:
0 = Off.
1 = On with sound repeated during the session.
2 = On with sound when the session starts and ends.
The registry subkey is updated to 1 when a machine policy is used.
This problem is scheduled to be fixed in SMS 2003 Service Pack 2 (SP2).
