I dont think support for the "Run Client Task Now" for non-windows systems was added until MA 5.0; I'm pretty sure with agent 4.8 and under, run client task now is only supported for windows.
Well that fits with my catch 22 problem. Thank you! I've been reading the docs on 4.8 and 5.0 and Windows\Mac, but haven't found that little tidbit yet.
It looks like I'll need to deploy physical techs to either visit or remotely connect and install the agent by running terminal and the Install.sh.
I was hoping with our recent upgrades, we'd be able to better manage our Macs. I know the ability to deploy is there, but with the limitations on Macintosh, it's difficult to secure those systems.
If anyone has found a reliable method to remotely deploy the McAfee 4.8 p3 agent to Macs, please let me know.
Yeah.. just googled and found this: https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB71298, for non-windows machines must be one agent 5.0 for run client task now.
You should be able to deploy the mac agent via a scheduled task; i've deployed it to various UNIX machines without issue but never mac.
