On Mojave, we deploy (lab) iMac using "kcpassword" method that auto login to an account upon enrolment completion which then runs DEPNotify to complete/start the initial setup. That same setup is not working for Catalina.
Any help would be appreciated.
@m.donovan The package (kcpassword file and post install script) that we have for Mojave is not working for Catalina. Was there any changes required or you made to work with Catalina? Like, changing permission or location to the kcpasssword file or editing the script?
Thanks in advance.
I made a couple scripts to do this without Python dependency: setAutomaticLogin.jamf.sh (use in a jamf policy) and setAutomaticLogin.sh (standalone) and expound upon them here: Automating automatic login for macOS
Regarding Catalina it seems it became very sensitive to whether the length of kcpassword was a multiple of 12 which didn't matter so much to previous and even future versions of macOS (Big Sur+ doesn't care!), and then it seemed to be very sensitive to what the padding characters were, sheesh what a pain Catalina!
