Centrify Deployment Manager with all versions of OS X 10.10Problem:
- Version 5.2.1-351 of the Mac agent has been downloaded (the minimum required for Yosemite support) and the latest manifest file has been imported into Deployment Manager.
- However, after adding a Mac OS 10.10 (Yosemite) machine to Centrify Deployment Manager, the Operating System is still displayed as Unknown or Unsupported.
Deployment Manager can usually be kept up to date by updating its manifest file, however some OS platform updates also require an update of Deployment Manager itself. See the following KB for more information:
OS X 10.10 was released by Apple just after Centrify Suite 2014.1 itself was released, this meant the original version of Suite 2014.1 did not include support for OS X Yosemite. Shortly after Yosemite was made public, Centrify refreshed the 2014.1 package with the updated components to support OS X 10.10.
Original Deployment Manager 2014.1: Version 220.127.116.11
Refreshed Deployment Manager 2014.1: Version 18.104.22.1685Resolution:
- To avoid having to download the whole Centrify Suite installer package again, Centrify DirectManage Express can also be used to deploy to the latest versions of OS X.
- (Centrify DirectManage Express is essentially just the Deployment Manager component of the full Centrify Suite by itself)
After updating Deployment Manager, the analysis tools and agent packages will need to be re-downloaded in Step 2:
Re-analyze the Yosemite systems and the rest of the deployment steps should now successfully complete.
