Sophos clients not updating

If the Installation Deployer command is executed from root it will run without a GUI session and without needing additional authentication.

I have found that if you do the following in the following order the desired results seem to be achieved. Bit messier than I thought it was going to be, the following looks like being the 'official' way to do it.Unfortunately Sophos have made this installer an application and not an installer package.As a result it cannot be deployed using Apple Remote Desktop, Casper, Munki, or any other Mac management tool.I plan however to build an Apple Package Maker pkg to copy the Sophos standalone installer and have a post 'install' shell script then run the Installation Deployer command.Either approach should remove SAV8 automatically before installing SAV9, and as I have pre-configured it to download directly from Sophos it should also then auto-update directly instead of via SUM which does not support SAV9.The final possibility and the one Sophos are pushing Mac only customers to, is to sign up for an subscription to Sophos Cloud.
