  • You have Mac OS 11 (Big Sur) and want to prepare the DLP Endpoint Agent package for mass deployment.
  • You run the sudo sh ./create_package command but receive the message that,  "create_package is no longer supported. For installation instructions refer to the Install_ReadMe.rtf file"
  • That file only contains instructions for manual deployment and references to the Installation Guide for further information, which then describes the create_package instructions once again

  • On Mac OS 11 (Big Sur) with 15.7 MP2 endpoint agent or later, there is no requirement to package the agent using the create_package command.
