SEP 14.x on MAC 


setup.ini located at /Library/Application Support/Symantec/Silo/MES/SMC, It doesn't contain all the expected values. It is missing the ProductVersion and PkgSizeWithoutDefs entries.

This is what we can see 

The expected entries should be as below,

ProductVersion= 14.3.510.0000

The setup.ini is created during the build process and is included in the installer, remote package, etc.


1. Select another Mac system that has the same version of SEP installed and shows the correct version in the SEPM console.
2. From this system, copy the file /Library/Application Support/Symantec/Silo/MES/SMC/setup.ini  
3. Replace it on the affected system at the same path
4. Restart the MAC system.
