In June 2010 the Application Compatibility Toolkit version 5.6 was released. If you do a fresh install of the ACT 5.6 you need to use the following script to configure the ACT Connector to be able ti connect the updated database. The “wizard” in the console to connect to the database doesn’t work against the updated 5.6 database. It is however possible to configure it using the vbscript which can found in this blog post, it was initially for an older version of the ACT Connect but it works fine.
Act Connector 5.5 can be downloaded using the link below, the one included on the original SCCM Media is an older version.
1 thought on “Using the ACT Connector together with ACT 5.6”
I have Installed ACT 5.6 on a server. Created a Collection Package. Deployed the package. Clients are successfully updating the ACT Server database. SCCM 2007 R3 is installed on another server. Installed the Act Connector on SCCM Server. Used the script to configure the ACT server on the SCCM server but I am unable to see any information.
Any ideas on what I might have done wrong. Your help is greatly appreciated.
