Setting up automation environment on Mac computers
Client Management Suite for Mac
An automation environment for a Mac client computer is a setup that is created on the client computer by installing a Mac automation folder. The automation folder or an automation volume lets you boot the client computer in an automation environment. The automation volume is installed on a Mac client computer using the Deployment Automation folder for Mac - Install policy.
The Deployment Automation folder for Mac - Install policy creates a DSAutomation volume on the disk volume where Symantec Management Agent (SMA) is installed. The automation volume uses only the available space on the volume that is installed with SMA and does not use any free space available on other volumes. Ensure that there is sufficient space on the volume on which you have installed the SMA. The approximate size of the automation folder that is created on the client computer is 15 GB. If, a volume is already present with the name, DSAutomation then a new volume of name DSAutomationA is created.
You can also uninstall the automation volume with the uninstall policy for Mac automation folder. After you enable the Deployment Automation folder for Mac - Uninstall policy you must manually delete the DSAutomation partition that is present in the unmounted and unallocated state. If you do not want to run the uninstall policy to uninstall the automation folder from the client computer, then you must manually erase the disk and the volume from the client computer. If, you manually erase the disk and the volume of the client computer, then ensure that you clean the Non-volatile random-access memory (NVRAM) of the client computer.
