Host Checker - Enforce Mac OS X levels

Since there are not predefined checks available for Mac OS X levels (I hope this comes soon) - is there any method that could enforce Mac OS X 10.7 and above (essentially 10.7 and 10.8)?   I am running 7.2R6 on MAG equipment.

 

The custom Host Checker policies for Mac can check if a process is running and the existance of a file (and ports).  Is there a viable method to enforce 10.7 and up using these checks?  I am not a Mac expert, but I have not been able to find a way.  The closest I've gotten to is enforcing 10.4 and up requiring a couple different processes, but this is not good enough for our security requirements. 

 

Any help or ideas would be appreciated.  I don't necessarily want to do much to end client (ie installing more than necessary), but would certainly be open to ideas.

 

Thanks!

Re: Host Checker - Enforce Mac OS X levels

Hi,

 

Doing this via process or file check is not a viable option as you said.

 

Submitting an enhancement request through your local juniper sales engineer would be the best approach.

Re: Host Checker - Enforce Mac OS X levels

Thanks for the reply, I have requested for the feature add.  I agree checking for processes is not a viable solution.  

 

Given the pre-defined checks for Mac OS levels is not immediately available, I continue to search for options.  I have some pressure to find a solution quickly to detect the Mac endpoints OS version so a user group can utilize their endpoints.  Are there any options/alternatives others have tested or are using?
