PMM installation logs will look as follows:

%localappdata%\Temp\Parallels Mac Management for Microsoft SCCM_20181111073813_002_PKG.PmmWin.log
%localappdata%\Temp\Parallels Mac Management for Microsoft SCCM_20181111073813.log


Antivirus blocks Nmap utility installation. This utility is installing as a part of the PMM Console Extension component.


Adjust antivirus software settings to allow Nmap installation.

NOTE: Parallels Mac Management is installing Nmap 7.12. Nmap is being used primarily for Parallels Network Discovery.
