How to manage the old Macs running below 10.6


I'm new on kace and I'm pretty bad in English so sorry in advance for the grammar

I must doing an inventory of our Mac, so I've installed the kace agent 6.3 version on the maximum of Mac but we have around 20 Macs running below 10.6 and I can't install the agent on them.

I would like to know how you include these old Mac?

I've found we can use snmp configuration,
If I've activated the discovery for snmp on Kace and I've activated snmp on the Mac this should work ?

Or is it possible to download an old agent compatible with old Mac ?

Thank you in advance for your help

With the actual site it is still possible to download K1000 agent bundle version 5.4.5315.
If you need older version I think you'd really need to ask to the support.
It is better to ask them about the compatibility as well.
6.4 should still be able to accept inventory from a 5.5 agent if I recall correctly or ever older (better to verify with the support)
You can use the new agentless feature of KACE and add the MAC OS devices as agentless devices if you enable SNMP on the devices.
You will not be able to distribute software, scripts or patch manager with an SNMP agentless device but at least you can have some hardware information in the K1000 about them.
Instead of using SNMP you can set the agentless device connection type to SSH/TELNET so you can obtain even more information from the MAC OS device.

    I will try to install an old version of Kace agent, but my colleague told me that any old version of Kace agent doesn't works with the actual version of our k1000 (6.3) and just the version 6.3 Kace agent works...
    Anyway I will try with the 5.4 Kace agent and if it doesn't work I will contact the support for verify the compatibility exactly.

    Otherwise I will use agentless configuration it's sounds more interesting than SNMP ! thanks a lot for your help ! - roya 8 years ago
