Parallels Mac Management does not push clients after Active Directory discovery

APPLIES TO:
  • Parallels Mac Management 4.5

Symptoms

Parallels Mac Management does not push clients after Active Directory discovery

Information

To successfully install Parallels Mac Management client using Client Push feature the following requirements should be met:

  1. Mac should be joined to Active Directory.
  2. Active Directory System discovery should be launched.
  3. Found resource should not have any client isntalled:

  4. SCCM should assign Operating System Name to found resource. Note that Operating System Name should contain Mac OS X substring:

    If Operating System Name is not assigned or does not have Mac OS X substring, then Parallels Mac Management cannot confirm that found resource is a Mac.

  5. SCCM should assign Configuration Manager Resident Sites to found resource:

    Note in most cases Configuration Manager Resident Site is not assigned, because of SCCM Boundaries misconfiguration.

    If Configuration Manager Resident Site is not assigned, then Parallels Mac Management cannot check what SCCM Site resource belongs to.

  6. Client Push should be enabled:

    • navigate to SCCM Overview > Administration > Site Configuration > Sites > right-click required Site > Parallels Mac Client Push Installation.

    • in General tab enable Automatic site-wide client push installation:

    • in Accounts tab accounts that have Administrator permissions on a Mac should be added:

  7. SSH port should be opened on a Mac

Parallels Mac Management Proxy checks for devices that are available for client push every 10 minutes.
