  3. Checking services on the workstation, CUI and EDPA are running but SEHA is not.
  4. Attempting to manually start SEHA results in one of the two following errors:

    Running SEHA from the Endpoint Agent folder
    "You cannot open the application "SEHA" because the application is not supported on the Mac."

    Starting SEHA from command line
    "The application cannot be opened for an unexpected reason, error=Error Domain=NSOSStatusErrorDomain Code=-10661 "(null)" UserInfo={_LSLine=3863, _LSFunction=_LSOpenStuffCallLocal}"

  2. Copy and run the agent install from the \private\tmp folder on the workstation to ensure the agent has proper permissions.
