Managing Perian through WorkGroup Manager OSX Leopard Server

Postby terryj » Fri Apr 02, 2010 1:44 pm

Hello!
I was wanting to manage Perian in our iMac Lab,
specifically set a MCX record that would force all our
machines to ignore the auto update
(Checkbox off) in the Perian Pref Pane.

I went to the WGM on our OSX Leopard Server,
and pulled in the preferences for the app
from the Server itself, which is set with the auto
update checkbox off.
The preferences come into the Machine Managed PRefs list
with only two flags set to often, the Last Version
and the Next Date Checked.
The Next Date Checked is set to 12/31/00.

Is this all I need to manage the auto update in the Perian Pref Pane?
TIA!!

search.php?keywords=Updater&fid%5B%5D=25 Specifically the post I made last Oct. That's the better method to disable update checks as it doesn't rely on prefs being set just right.
