I'm running into an issue where an application is nowhere to be found on my machine (running 12.0.1) after installing a package that I uploaded into self service. The log from the policy shows no errors (i.e. the line says the package successfully installed), but the application is nowhere to be found. I ran the same policy on a machine running 11.6 and it worked as expected. Anyone else experiencing this? (Screenshot of log details below, exact same log for both attempts)
Okay that worked! I was able to download the package that way. I had to approve it in SysPref -> Security & Privacy, but the Installer seemed to work just fine. However, the application still does not appear in the Applications directory.
So to answer your initial question, no, the package does not install successfully. It appears to (like it does when installed from the Self Service app), but the application does not appear in the Applications folder.
Downoaded Suspicious Package at your suggestion. Unless I'm missing something, it's showing that the application was installed (using /usr/sbin/installer) into the Applications folder. There is a warning on the package that it isn't signed, but that shouldn't have any bearing on this issue, should it?
Do you have a copy of the app stored somewhere other than the apps folder? If the package is relocatable and you already have a copy of the app say in your downloads folder then it will overwrite that app rather than install it in the apps folder. If not then I would suggest looking in the install.log file to see what’s going on.
Yes I was able to get this figured out eventually, but I am having trouble recalling the precise solution. I'm sorry, I should have notified this board when I solved it!
IIRC, the app was successfully installing, but it was landing somewhere other than the Applications folder. I seem to recall that reading the install log file (at /var/log/install.log) was useful in the process. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful than this!
