Hi,

I want to block my user from updating their Mac to El Capitan.

Is there anyway to do this ?

Thanks!

Hello chuyendv,
We usually do this by sending out a script that looks for the installation process and kills it, this particular script also looks for the installation path and deletes the file while sends a message to the users stating that this is a not supported action.
The fileset is attached, please check it out and make the changes you need for the message or its behavior.
Thank you,
Mauricio.
