    Just tried to publish latest Apple Application Support (2.1.5) and it failed.  Looking at XML the sdp:OriginFile OriginUri="file://millerscup/AAS/AppleApplicationSupport215.msi" looks funny (suspicious) to me...  Any ideas?

          The URI is intended only as a placeholder, as the Apple Application Support installer is not independently distributed (rather, it is bundled with the application installers). You will need to manually obtain the installer file and edit the URL accordingly. Following are step by step instructions outlining this process:



          Obtaining the Apple Application Support MSI package:


          There are two way to acquire the Apple Application Support package.

          NOTE: Each AAS Patch description states what products it applies to.

          1. Launching the installer:
          a.  Download the version of product that you are planning to deploy through SCCM. This download will contain the Apple Application Support package.
          b. On a machine, launch the installer by double clicking. Do not click on any of the installation wizard buttons.
          c. Navigate to your C:Documents and SettingsinsertcurrentlyloggedonuserLocal SettingsTempIXPxxx.tmp (xxx is a random number).
          d. The file will be in that directory called AppleApplicationSupport.msi. Copy this file to another location.
          e. Close the installer for the product.
          f. Rename the file to the appropriate name, as in the following examples:
          Apple Application Support 1.0.0 -> AppleApplicationSupport100.msi
          Apple Application Support 1.0.1 -> AppleApplicationSupport101.msi
          Apple Application Support 1.1.0 -> AppleApplicationSupport110.msi

          2. Use either 7 zip or Winrar:
          a. Download the version of product that you are planning to deploy through SCCM. This download will contain the Apple Application Support package.
          b. Open the installer using a file compression tool (e.g. 7zip).
          c. Copy AppleApplicationSupport.msi file to another location, then close the utility.
          d.  Right Click on the AppleApplicationSupport.msi file which was copied, and select properties.
          e. Click on the Summary Tab.
          f. Under Description  > Comments the version of Apple Application Support is displayed.
          g. Close the AppleApplicationSupport.msi properties.
          h. Rename the file to the appropriate name, as in the following examples:
          Apple Application Support 1.0.0 -> AppleApplicationSupport100.msi
          Apple Application Support 1.0.1 -> AppleApplicationSupport101.msi
          Apple Application Support 1.1.0 -> AppleApplicationSupport110.msi

           

          Changing the SCUPdate package:


          1) In the System Center Updates Publisher, navigate to the appropriate package and edit the package.
          2) Change the Download URL (or UNC) to a location your clients can connect.
          For example:
          \serverservershareAppleApplicationSupportxxx.msi
          -or-
          http://servername/AppleApplicationsSupportxxx.msi
          3) Click Finish
          4) Publish update to your SCCM console.
