Mac Client. Can't open Configuration Manager Preferences RRS feed

  • Question

  • I added my root CA to the trusted root CAs on Mac OS X Snow Leopard.

    I have installed the Mac client with no errors. using sudo ./ccmsetup

    I then enrolled using sudo ./cmenroll and that worked fine no errors.

    I restarted my Mac Mini which has an Intel Core Duo processor. Then I went to System Preferences and tried to open the Configuration Manager preferences only to get this "Preferences Error" which says this:

    "You can't open Configuration Manager preferences because it doesn't work on an Intel-based Mac.

    Here is a screenshot of the error:

    I am confused by this because I though ALL Macs made today were Intel based.

    Any help would be appreciated,

  • I would like to add that it appears to be working with SCCM. From my management server I can use the resource explorer on this Mac. I just cannot actually view the local settings on the Mac itself.

  • Exact same error here.  I was able to install it in Beta, now it seems to be broke.  

    Looking for feedback on this post.

  • Just a follow up, I too can see my Mac as an active client.  I've attempted to send a Software Deployment to the machine and currently it is failing with Error Code 0x87D103E8 (-2016345112)  Error Unknown

    The Deployment Status states:  Failed to locate content

    I do have boundary groups configured and my Windows machines seem to work fine.

    I know I went off topic a bit, but maybe it has something to do with the client not working correctly.
