    LANDESK Is excited to announce an updated 9.6 SP2 Mac agent compatible with Apple’s OS X El Capitan (10.11) release.


    The updated LANDESK agent provides support for OS X El Capitan (10.11), OS X Yosemite (10.10) and OS X Mavericks (10.9). Please note this updated LANDESK agent will no longer be compatible with OS X Mountain Lion (10.8).  For 10.8 support, make a backup of your current agent install files before installing the patch.


    How to get the patch

    The OS X El Capitan compatible patch can be found within the LANDesk updates through patch manager or eventually it can be requested from LANDESK Support by opening a support case.


    Simply install the patch to your core server and distribute the agent to your 10.9 or greater Mac machines.


    In addition to adding support for OS X El Capitan, this agent contains a number of performance and stability enhancements to the Agent.
