Modify configuration files post installation

When Mac Workstation Authentication is installed, configurations are set at the system level, and when user(s) enable Mac Workstation Authentication on their account, at the user level. Do not modify the configurations after the installation.

If you need to modify the xml file for Mac Workstation Authentication, run the .pkg file over the existing installation. Do not uninstall Mac Workstation Authentication as this would require the end users to re-enable Mac Workstation Authentication.

For larger deployments, utilize a deployment tool, such as Jamf to update the xml file.
