mac users

Has anyone got a configuration in place which checks the OS level of a mac? What is the criterion you are using? Is there a way for Host Checker to set off a command such as %uname -a?

Re: mac users

MAC host checking is limited to files, processes and ports. So you would need to have some form of an embedded process or perhaps a file that you dumped on the MAC that reflected the version. You could then check against that file.

Hi,

A periodic process (crontab) owned by root something along the lines of...

uname -r > .hiddenfilesomewhereobtuse

...might do the trick. The problem is that once someone discovers where that is, if they have admin access then they can change it and stop the cron job :-(

Rgds,

Guy
