Adding content that is already on the endpoint to JAMF

New Contributor

Let's say that all my macs come pre-installed with application1.dmg on the hard drive. Now instead of deploying application1.dmg out to my distribution points and making new clients get it from there. Is there a way I can inform JAMF to look for this file on endpoints before going to the distribution point for it?

If you're talking about something like content caching, such as what Apple uses with Caching Server, then no, this is something that Jamf doesn't have support for yet. It might be on their radar, but I don't know.

If this dmg is truly available on every device after setup, then it is possible to craft a script that would locate and mount the disk image and install whatever is in it that can run thru a Jamf policy.

Otherwise, by default all clients need to download your pkg or dmg files from a distribution point set up in the Jamf console, not from a local machine that already has it.
