Deploying apps to M1 and Intel-based machines

New Contributor

Hello all,

I'm having a frustrating problem with deploying architecture-specific applications to our mixed fleet of M1 and Intel Macbooks. I've created Smart groups that look at the machine architecture and divide them into groups based on it being x86_64 or arm64. Then I use simple configuration profiles to deploy packages based on their group membership. However M1 machines are consistently getting the Intel version of the packages installed! I've double-checked that I am uploading and naming the packages correctly. Where could I look to begin troubleshooting this problem?

I'm happy to provide any additional info or screenshots. Thanks in advance!

Use Processor_type instead and "M1" to get the M1 machines in a group instead.
