Mac OS X 10.9.3 is supported on System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager and System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1 with the following known exception:
If you inventory video controllers on Mac computers (selected by default), they will not be inventoried, and Configuration Manager Mac clients running on Mac OS X 10.9.3 will no longer connect to management points to get policy.
Workaround: You must uncheck the Video Controller class found in the Hardware Inventory tab of Client Settings. You can do this before or after the problem occurs.
In the Administration workspace, click Client Settings and select the client settings you have created for Mac computers (or create new Client Device Settings).
Right-click the client settings and then select Properties.
Navigate to Hardware Inventory tab and click Set Classes.
Search for “video controller”. Once you notice the list under Video Controller class is populated, make sure that the Video Controller (Win32_VideoController) class is unchecked as shown below.

Thanks for the heads up, is there any plans to make the the mac client more versatile to os versions, it seam very sensitive to os revision.
nice job indeed thanl you
@steve, yes, it is our plan to fix this issue and avoid similar issues in future.
So any resolution to this?
Does it have to be unchecked in Default Settings or a unchecked in custom setting would do?
