Mac Patching with KACE

09/03/2015 2573 views
We are now deploying some mac's in our environment and I would like to try a patch these machines with KACE.  For windows I use Patch labels and this works real well.  When I try and do patch labels for Macintosh it doesn't pull up Macintosh security patches.

Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong for this.  Can patch labels be used for Macintosh?

  • We use them without issue. Perhaps try to broaden your net and make sure you are subscribed to Mac patches.
  • yes they do , as suggested by Jbr32 .. see if you are subscribed and run detect . we did mac patching last September for some vulnerability .
  • Thanks guys. Poked around more and I believe I see what I missed!
  • I do not believe apple submits their core patches to lumension either.
