What is the best way to successfully deploy Endpoint Security for Mac from ePO 4.6.4?

I am having difficulty setting up tasks to properly deploy McAfee Endpoint Security for Mac Suite 1.2.  I am able to create and deploy tasks to push the McAfee Agent to a MacBook OSX (Lion).  But I cannot get the tasks to deploy the Endpoint Security Suite.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Can you send me log Agent log files from yur client machine?

    Make sure you are sending this task with admin$ rights on client PC (Domain admin), also when you creat a task make sure only Mac is selecet under platforms list.

    Further I will help you out after viewing Log files.
