To scan Apple Mac OS X machines, you need to deploy the Single Host Agent locally on the target system.
The installation can only be done under the Mac Terminal, as the Agent will be installed as a daemon (service) under the LocalSystem account.
Installation of Local Services on Mac OS X systems requires root privileges. The ‘root’ account is disabled by default on Mac systems; therefore you need to enable it to proceed.
Before scanning Mac OS X machines, please see the following sections:
