Has anyone had any experience instlling and using Microsoft's Endpoint for Mac?


I have tried it and am having some difficulty wihen using ARD to control systems that have Endpoint installed.  Communications failures seem to occur and client systems quit responding to the ARD admin.  Eventually the systems do seem to come back but it might take 15 or 20 minutes.  When they have quite responding, the only way to get them back if you do not want to wait thm out is to force a "Power button 10 sec. reset" 


The problem does not seem to be completely repeatable in that earlier in the day, I used this same manner of control on another room full of very similar systems and no problems took place.  The problem first surfaced Friday afternoon shortly after Endpoint was installed.  At that time 13 of 26 systems indicated "Communications Failure".  But today, tin he morning things worked as expected but the afternoon resulted in 11 of 23 systems showing the "communications failure".


These clients are all iMac systems running 10.8.4 and have have permissions repairs done to them using ARD if they did not quit responding as mentioned above.


I have found almost no information on Endpoint with the Mac version.  This version, for Mt. Lion seemed to have been released just this past May.  Prior to that there was not a Mt. Lion version available.


Anyone have any experience with this Endpoint version for Mac Mt. Lion version?
