Come on guys, someone has to have run into this before......
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I stay away from the Mac stuff as much as possible, but I do not a lot of folks use ARD to push agents

With LDMS 9.x you can push the clients via SSH. Do an unmanaged device discovery or manually add the machines to the DB then you can drag and drop the machines on the new MAC client and schedule the push. If the old client exits on the machines LDMS can use the CBA for the install.
I forgot to also add that to push the client via SSH your Scheduler account needs to have an administrator account to the MAC as well.
Configure | Services |Scheduler Click on Change login and add an applicable account.
Thanks very much for the reply guys. I have not used device discovery much, but will take a look. Unfortunately, with the way our MACs are setup, they auth against our LDAP servers on the unix side while our windows stuff and LANDesk hits against our windows domain controllers. So setting up an account with admin rights on the macs other than their local sysadmin account might me tough right now. I will keep at it and see what I can do.
I did a little reading into the unmanaged discovery section (should have a long time ago). This has been working great. I have been able to use discovery to locate them, then just drag them into the agent install task. It takes a while, but they have been showing up into inventory.
Thanks again and again for the help.
