How to use Apple Remote Desktop (ARD) to deploy Centrify DirectControl agent?


Apple Remote Desktop is commonly used by administrators to perform various administrative management tasks on remote Mac systems, including remote controlling the system, gathering inventory, and installing software.
  • Support for Apple Remote Desktop was introduced in version 3.0.3 of the Mac agent and required some modification to allow for remote deployment via ARD.
  • As of version 5.1.1, the installation package natively supports ARD and there is now no need to modify the pkg file.
