To gather inventory data on managed computers, you must install the Inventory Plug-in on target computers. This plug-in works with the Symantec Management Agent to perform tasks on the target computers and communicate with Notification Server.
To install a plug-in, you configure the policy that installs the plug-in on target computers. You specify from Mac the group of computers on which the policy runs and when it runs. If you choose a group that contains a computer that already has the plug-in installed, the task is ignored on that computer. When the policy is turned on, the plug-in is automatically installed on any new computer that is a member of the target group.
By default, no plug-in installation policies are turned on. If you install Inventory Solution for the first time, you must manually turn on the policies to install the Inventory Plug-in.
Before performing this task, you must install the Symantec Management Agent on target computers.
You can also manually install the Inventory Plug-in on Mac computers.
