So, despite Adobe announcing Adobe Acrobat Reader DC and it seeming like the replacement for Adobe Reader. they did release the 11.0.11 update after they introduced Acrobat Reader DC. So, the future of the old Reader is still a little unclear. I have a feeling that they felt compelled to issue that update for Reader because of some security issue they found in 11.0.10 (what else but security issues) and since not everyone has or can switch to the new application, they had to put out that update. I haven't read up on that release, so I'm only speculating here.
FWIW, I had updated my own scripts that do updates to look to Reader DC as well, but I'm considering putting the old Adobe Reader back in as an option.
You can download the Adobe Reader 11.0.11 updater here: http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=5910
The disk image you download will contain an installer package to update Adobe Reader XI to 11.0.11. Add the installer package to your JSS, then deploy it with a policy.
Note that this is an updater only, and will require that Adobe Reader XI already be installed.
I have noticed a few failures of the policy (5 out of about 100), but generally asking the end user to reboot, then flushing the failure log from the policy, will allow the policy to successfully complete.
Hope that helps.
@joe.farage Do you have time to check this [https://jamfnation.jamfsoftware.com/viewProductFile.html?fid=773](script )again? i think variable $userAgent isn't get the correct current version now.
from my test, the current version is lower than my installed version
