Good afternoon everyone. I just set up our computer in the Apple DEP program. Through trial and error I finally got it working. We want to be able to have users pick up their computer from a store and have the setup automated. Right now I have to manually restart the computer after file vault deploys. How do I get the computer to auto restart after file vault is deployed?
You don't need to restart a Mac after turning on FileVault if the startup disk is CoreStorage or APFS. Most (all?) Macs you buy today have CoreStorage or APFS-formatted startup disks.
So before you spend too much time trying to engineer a way to force a restart, make sure it's actually needed.
