Hey everyone,For anyone interested I thought I'd share my experiences
going from a fresh install of NetSUS to production. Due to the lack of
how-to's and going on google-sprees, I spent about a week trying to
figure out how to take JAMF's NetSUS appl...
Somehow I got locked out of my NetSUS server admin console (I can ssh in
though) and I'm unable to log in. I tried following the recommendation
at the article here, but I still can sign in.Whats odd too is that the
file mentioned, appliance.conf.xml,...

Hi all, I set our Macs(Sierra) to do automatic Security Updates. In the
past I think I can remember the updates were asking for admin
credentials. Are these admin credentials now not needed anymore and OSX
is installing them straight away?
Good morning.I have been testing a self service upgrade of Sierra. We
are only allowing this for machines running 10.10 and higher because of
our disk encryption system. Older machines are not using File Vault for
encryption so an upgrade is not an o...
Hi all.For the life of me, I just can't get Mac OSX Software Updates

Hi everyone I am wondering if anyone has been successful in installing

I have recently found that several iPads are updated to 9.3.5 or 10.x.
The students will come in with various different problems, and I notice

Has anyone been able to get a NBI working with Sierra and NETSUS 4? I
created one with AutoDMG and AutoCasperNBI, but my NetSUS 4 server

We just migrated from JSS 9.92 (on Windows Server 2012 VM) to 9.96. We

This may sound like a stupid question, but do Apple's security updates
