When installing the endpoint agent the install fails with PKInstallErrorDomain Code=112
MacOS 11.x and above
On the system, there was a presence of a bom file in /var/db/receipts folder. This BillOfMaterials file's content contained the path listed below:
./Library/LaunchDaemons/com.symantec.manufacturer.agent.plist 100400 0/0 288 3711149712./Library/LaunchDaemons/com.symantec.manufacturer.agent.plist 100400 0/0 288 3711149712
When the above path was passed to the pkgutil --file-info-plist command as part of the Installer's CustomAction run, it was still able to locate the corresponding bom and the plist file in the receipts directory.
This caused the installer to determine that the version 126.96.36.199 was installed on the system.
in the install.log:
package_script_service: ./preinstall: 2022-07-27 14:40:31 | Installer.main | FINEST | Currently installed agent version 188.8.131.52
remove any custom .bom or .plist from /private/var/db/reciepts with the following commands:
sudo pkguitl remove <name of plist>
in terminal use rm -rf command to manually delete the .bom and .plist from /var/db/reciepts
NOTE: using MDM server to customize the app ID and app version is not supported and will break agent installs.
