We are also struggling with OSX 10.11 on 7.6. We were able to get the agent working on one machine but not anohter. One the one machine I had to tweak some default filters but was able to get CEM working but now we are having issue with software delivery. Can we at least expect an early support statement soon so we know what the limitations are on 10.11?
It is kind of a big deal, but Apple let everyone know about it months ago.
The Endpoint Protection team was able to deliver an update last week that added 10.11 support.
All you need to do is switch from /usr/bin to /usr/local/bin as your default location for everything. If I update the Altiris config file for that location and then run:
I can at least get the agent to startup on Mac OS X 10.11.
All the sub agents fail to install, but if you guys simply do a global replace on the source code to point to /usr/local/bin instead of /usr/bin and re-complile I would expect you would be nearly done.
Very disapointing that Mac OS X 10.11 support is not part of this update.
The Symantec Endpoint Protection team dropped an update last week to add support for Mac OS X 10.11. I was certainly expecting the Altiris team to follow suit. Dropping the ball for the folks that support Macs. :-(
can you give some details what the plan is to support MacOSX 10.11 (El Capitan) ...
customers start pushing...
The SMP agent install on OS X 10.11 is failing due to the addition of 'System Integrity Protection' to El Capitan. This is also (inappropriately) referred to as 'rootless'.
This addition prevents even the 'root' user from making changes within the /usr and other directories. We, along with other software development companies, need to find a way to work within the constraints imposed by System Integrity Protection. It's kind of a big deal.
So no OSX 10.11 support? El Capitan is here and the dev builds have been available for quite some time.
