I work for a school district supporting a number of schools. Recently we updated to SEP 12.1.2 and one of our system engineers provided an installer package we could use (via ARD or direct install, etc.) Or possibly even an Altiris policy, we'll see.
My question is that the 12.1.2 Mac package he provided to us was odd...unlike any Mac .pkg installer I've ever seen. Here's the directory of files:
Symantec Endpoint Protection.pkg
Additional Resources (folder)
We were told that the Additional Resources folder must be kept with the .pkg file in order for the install to work. So that rules out the most convenient way to update our users: pushing via Apple Remote Desktop.
When I asked him about this, he said this is how the client package is exported from the management server and that the documentation says this is how it is for Macs - there is no option for a self-contained .pkg
Needless to say, this is odd. Is there no way to get a 12.1.2 self contained .pkg installer for the mac?
