Have maybe a not so odd situation. Recently took over the role of the ePO admin in an organization with a mixed platform network. My expertise has always been on the PC side, so deploying agents and VSE to homogenize the enterprise to a standard has been challenging yet manageable. But the OSx Macs have been a problem. I have them all secluded in their own folder in the tree, have tasks set up to install the Agent and Endpoint 2.0 with the Run Immediately option... But only have seem 10 or 15 of the 500 or so Macs accept the new versions. Also is it normal for Macs to be reasonably secretive? I can query the machines and see them online but cannot get any information for the life of me within ePO. Dealing with OSx is pretty new to me, I haven't dealt with any Mac since System 6 in my 30 years of IT so be gentle.
What is MAC OS X Operating system version you useing to install EPM 2.0 ?
For product supported environments, see KB78694 / KB76330.
How to view and validate tasks that are pushed from ePO to a Mac client
Version of OS X 10.7-10.8
So what you are saying is, according to KB77688, that Macs not giving up their versions etc.. within the ePO is "by design".
No i am saying that this is by design asking you to verify that correct version the agent installed and communication b/w epo server and Mac machine is fine .
KB77688 this KB's shows how to verify the that task pushed from the epo to client mac machine. Raise case support team so that they can look into the logs.
