Apple has provided a large number of command line utilities that facilitate the management of Mac client computers. Many of these scripts have been used to create 'run script' tasks in the Symantec Management Platform (SMP)console for use by Altiris administrators.

The attached file is an export xml of the collection of these scripts. The collection can be imported into the SMP. To do so, simply right-click on a desired parent folder, select 'Import' and browse to a local copy of the attached file. The menu structure shown below will be created and all scripts will be available for your use. Feel free to customize the list and the scripts as deemed appropriate for your environment.

***These scripts, and the entire import xml file, are provided as-is. They are intended to be functional out-of-the-box but Symantec provides no guarantee as to their accuracy or applicability in your environment. Please verify all scripts before using them in your production environment. Symantec will not be held responsible for any misuse, misconfiguration, data or time loss or any other liability due to the use of these scripts.
