It would be better if Symantec End Point management server can support managing the non Windows Client (Linux and MAC) because from what I can see here now only WIndows package can be flexible by editing the Sylink.xml to make it manage or unmanaged.

There already is a SEP for Mac client, which can be managed or unmanaged.

Linux management via the SEPM is on our roadmap and being planned for a future release.  I will update post when more detailed information is available.
