The Adobe Provisioning Toolkit Enterprise Edition is a command-line tool for supported platforms that helps you track and manage serialization of Adobe® products that you have deployed using the Adobe Application Manager Enterprise Edition.
The Preference Reference provids details about advanced plist configuration.
Update management tools: Acrobat supports both the Adobe Update Server Setup Tool (AUSST) as well as the Remote Update Manager (RUM).
AUSST allows enterprise IT administrators to set up and maintain an in-house update server that synchronizes with Adobe’s update servers. Client machines then download and install updates from the internal AUSST server rather than the Adobe update servers. The tool supports a command line switch (–acrobatonly) so that only Acrobat updates are synchronized. For details, refer to the AUSST documentation.

RUM supports remotely invoking the Adobe Update Manager to install without having to log in on individual machines. For details, refer to the RUM documentation. Mac download: https://s3.amazonaws.com/deploymenttools-prod/RemoteUpdateManager_mac.zip
