Im trying to update Symantec to 12.1.6 on some Mac clients.  Currently they have versions 12.1.1, 4, and 5.  I created a managed install for the 12.1.6.pkg file using the default installation and it works fine.  However, a reboot is required for Symantec to "turn on"  Is there a command to get a Mac to reboot using Kace and would i have to have a command to install since i would be using the override default installation?

shutdown -r now

For more information see the man page:

If you are using a managed install then you will have to wrap the Symantec installer in a script that will install the package and then run the restart command.
installer -pkg 12.1.6.pkg -target /
shutdown -r now

  • thank you for the help, im trying to run the command in terminal for testing and run the installer as well as restart...my command line, is installer -pkg osx-12-mp2.pkg -target /shutdown -r now.....but i get the error installer: invalid option -r...what am i doing wrong?
    • Those are two separate commands. The first is the installer command and the second is the restart command. They aren't meant to be on the same line.

So your 'Subject' line should *actually* read "Rebooting Macs via Kace", then.
