TEMP_PATH="/opt/kace/petemp/${MAC}"

 

IFS=$'\n'

volume=`mount | grep -m 1 disk0`

zeroMount=`echo "$volume" | awk  '{  print substr($0,index($0, "on ")+3,index($0, "(")-index($0, "on ")-4) }'`

 

prefPath=${KACE_SYSTEM_DRIVE_PATH}/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist

 

tComputerName=`/usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "Print System:System:ComputerName" $prefPath`

if [ x$computerName == x0 ]; then
